25 September, 2020 | Local

A NUMBER of police officers were needed to restrain a man who allegedly assaulted paramedics at a property in Greenock.

The medical crew requested emergency assistance yesterday (Thursday) around 4pm while treating a 39-year-old male at Waverley Street.

The patient had allegedly hit one of the paramedics with a crutch and thrown the other over a couch before they were able to summon help.

Sergeant Jason Logsdon said: “Due to the male’s size and strength, a number of officers were required to restrain him safely on being arrested.”

The man has been held in custody to appear at court.
