EMS worker stabbed in Middletown


A Louisville EMS worker was stabbed in the abdomen tonight at a Middletown ambulance bay as he was preparing an ambulance for a shift.

The paramedic was approached just before 9 p.m. and stabbed in the abdomen, said Louisville EMS director Neal Richmond.

Louisville police blocked off the streets as the medic was rushed to University Hospital, where Richmond said he was in stable condition last night. The medic, who is in his 20s, suffered what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries, he said.

Police officers in the 8th Division were investigating the assault, but had no immediate information on a suspect, department spokeswoman Alicia Smiley
