Paramedic Attacked by Suspect in Hillcrest

A San Diego Fire-Rescue crew got some police backup after a transient attacked a paramedic Wednesday night, San Diego Police say. 

Officers responded to 5th Avenue and Washington Street at about 10:11 p.m. when the crew called for help.

It's unclear what led to the confrontation, but the transient was soon taken into custody on battery charges. 

The paramedic did not need to be transported from the scene.
