TWO paramedics were attacked in a street in Cirencester by a patient they were treating.

The paramedics, a man and a woman, both sustained minor injuries while answering a call late at night about a male found unconscious in St Clements Walk just after 8.30pm on Sunday.

The female paramedic was struck on the arm and her male colleague was punched in the head and kicked in the face.

A 17-year-old male from Chesterton was charged with two counts of common assault and will appear at Gloucester Youth Court on April 29.
