Hackensack Police Lt. John Heinemann says officers encountered 43-year-old Wayne Carter around 10 a.m. Sunday when they responded to reports of a man barricaded in a room and threatening to harm himself.

Two officers kicked in the door and saw Carter in a corner, holding a knife in his hand. Ignoring their orders to drop the knife, Carter stood up and stabbed himself in the abdomen, legs and neck.

The officers then used pepper spray in a bid to subdue him, but it had no effect.

Heinemann says Carter then cut off pieces of his skin and intestines and threw them at the officers.
