Does anyone know if a kitchen "butcher" knife can penetrate standard police-issue body armor?

A few years ago, I covered a story in Indiana in which a psychotic who had been off his medicine attacked a K-9 dog and its handler with a "butcher" knife. Although the officer's vest was resistant to the attack, the perp slashed both arms severing the tendons and rendering the offier helpless. Fortunately, another office took the perp down with a fatal head shot before he could do more damage.

Alabama Jack (Who vowed never again to work at a newspaper adjacent to the police station - which is where this attack took place).
