The officer, whose name was not released, was responding to a theft call on Woodbridge Avenue at about 9 p.m.
The suspect fled, and the officer ran after him to Dorman and Central avenues.
A struggle ensued in the 300 block of Dorman.
The officer suffered cuts to his arms and legs. The suspect, also unidentified, sustained a cut to his head.
Both the suspect and the officer were taken to Rideout Regional Medical Center to be checked out.
