One person is in custody after police in Philadelphia say he attacked a medical crew and damaged their ambulance during a call early Sunday.

The incident occurred just after midnight on the 1200 block of West Somerset Street in the city’s Hunting Park section, Action News 6 ABC is reporting.

While medics were helping an elderly man, someone approached and started throwing bricks and jumping on the ambulance, reports indicate.

The crew called for assistance, but the man ran off before police arrived, according to reports.

The ambulance had to be taken out of service due to the extensive damage.

The incident is under investigation, and the identity of the person who has been arrested has not yet been released.
