At about 4:00 PM on Wednesday July 10, 2019, officers assigned to District A-1 (Downtown) responded to a call for EMTs in trouble in the area of 24 New Chardon Street. On arrival, officers located a female EMT suffering from multiple stab wounds. Responding officers immediately began to provide medical assistance to the victim. Officers also located a male EMT standing behind the ambulance suffering from exposure to an undetermined chemical agent.
