Details emerge of second attack on paramedics in Cork in two days

Details of a second incident have emerged today following last night’s incident in the Mahon area of the city in which a paramedic was assaulted and threatened with a knife.

A 16-year-old boy arrested at the scene has since been released without charge and garda enquiries are ongoing.

A garda spokesman said a file will now be prepared for the Garda National Juvenile Office.

However, gardaí have confirmed that they are also investigating another recent attack on paramedics in the city.

Two paramedics were injured as they responded to a call to a house in the Knocknaheeny area of the city at 8.30am last Sunday.

A female paramedic suffered a dislocated thumb and her male partner suffered soft tissue damage to his back during the incident.

A man in his late 20s was arrested at the scene.

He has since been released without charge and gardaí said they are in the process of preparing a file for the DPP in relation to the incident.
