The police sources had previously indicated that their colleague had been wounded in the attack, which saw the knifeman shot and seriously wounded.
“The policeman who was stabbed has fortunately not been physically injured thanks to his bulletproof vest,” Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin wrote on Twitter.
The police sources said the incident was being treated as a possible terrorist attack, and Darmanin announced he was heading to the scene.
The officer was behind the wheel of a car in front of a police station at 6:30 a.m. (05:30 GMT) when the attacker opened the door and stabbed him with a knife, one source said on condition of anonymity.
