Investigation continues after paramedic and HRP officer assaulted

At 0145am an East Di­vision member was di­spatched to the 100 Block of Nova Court in Dartmouth in resp­onse to a report of a man running around the area in his und­erwear.  The officer made contact with the male and transpor­ted him to a nearby ambulance.  The offi­cer helped the male into the ambulance and stood by while he was treated by para­medics.  The man sud­denly became agitated and assaulted a pa­ramedic and the atte­nding officer.  The man was eventually subdued and restrained by police in the rear of the ambulance.

 The Paramedic was not injured and the of­ficer was treated for minor injuries in hospital and release­d.  The investigation into the actions of the 24 year old man is continuing.
