An 18-year-old who assaulted a paramedic after he was caught trying to have sex with a girl in the back of an ambulance on call has been jailed for two years and eight months

Paramedics were shocked to find Kyle Hargreaves kissing a girl on a stretcher in the back of the emergency vehicle, which was called to assist a 92-year-old man suffering from chest pains.

When the crew returned with the pensioner to the ambulance to find the young love birds, paramedic Michael Newman confronted Hargreaves.

The paramedic was told, “What’s your problem? We are just trying to have sex.”

With that, Hargreaves allegedly punched Newman three times as he carried the patient, knocking him to the ground, a move which didn’t impress the judge at the Gimsby Crown court

As if that wasn’t bad enough, the girl on the stretcher bit another paramedic, William Heron, on his hand, while Newman suffered a black eye and a bloody nose.

The ambulance crew held Hargreaves long enough for the police to arrive and arrest him at the scene.

Following the court hearing,steve pratten  from the East Midlands Ambulance Service, said he was pleased with the verdict.

Pratten added that the paramedics who were attacked have received the appropriate treatment, adding, “Both of our staff have been supported by East Midlands Ambulance Service through counselling and occupational health services. The technician who was bitten on the hand had to have a series of injections.”
