Patrolman Farmer was stabbed while attempting to apprehend a prostitute on East Broad Street. He and another officer were on patrol when they observed the prostitute and a male enter an alley. When the officers surprised the two the man fled on foot and prostitue produced a knife and stabbed Patrolman Farmer.

An autopsy revealed Patrolman Farmer died from a heart attack he suffered after being stabbed and that the stab wound had nothing to do with it. The 32-year-old woman was convicted of maliciously wounding an officer and sentenced to five years in prison.

Patrolman Farmer had been with the agency for six years.
