Ambulance staff called police last week when a man in need of medical attention was unwilling to go to hospital. Officers arrived and were able to convince the man to get in the ambulance. The paramedics requested an officer ride in the back of the ambulance to escort them to the hospital.

While in the ambulance, the man became aggressive, and punched the officer in the face. A struggle ensued, but police were able to help restrain him until they arrived safely at the hospital.

The officer suffered minor injuries. The suspect could face a charge of assault peace officer.
