Ambulance worker struck with pipe in Flanders

A Flanders-Northampton Volunteer Ambulance member was hit with a pipe while trying to break up a fight in Flanders last week, Southampton police said.

The volunteer told police he was on duty at ambulance headquarters last Tuesday when a man described only as Hispanic knocked on the door and told him his friends were being assaulted by two men.

The ambulance worker followed the man and saw two Hispanic men in an altercation with two men.

When the ambulance volunteer tried to break up the fight, one of the men hit him in the leg with a metal pipe and ran off in a westerly direction on Flanders Road, police said.

The suspects were described as white males in their 20s or 30s and medium heights and weights, police said. One was wearing a red shirt and red shorts and the other was wearing a black top and black pants at the time.

The ambulance worker complained of minor leg pain.
