Two Boyle County EMS personnel were injured early this morning while trying to treat the victim of a stabbing. According to police reports, William Ramsey, 35, of Holtzclaw Avenue, had a stab wound in his right shoulder from a fight at Speedway on Main Street, but when EMS tried to treat him, he resisted.
One EMS employee was bitten on the finger while another was kicked in the ribs, EMS Director Brad Ellis said.
"It does happen on occasion, somebody being combative, but normally they are pretty well taken care of," said Ellis.
Police report that Ramsey had been in a fight with Charles L. Davis, 43, of Phillips Lane, Junction City. According to witnesses, Davis had entered Speedway to pay for his gas when Ramsey confronted him and an argument ensued.
When Davis went outside to his car, Ramsey allegedly reached inside and took the keys. Davis left the vehicle to demand the keys back and was then allegedly assaulted by Ramsey. During the fight Davis was stabbed in the throat and Ramsey in the shoulder.
