Coleraine ambulance attack and assault: Two charged

Two people have been charged over attacks in Coleraine on Tuesday night, including damage to an ambulance attending the scene of an assault.

An 18-year-old man has been charged with grievous bodily harm with intent.

A 17-year-old boy was charged with two counts of common assault and two counts of criminal damage.

The attack on the ambulance happened at about 20:00 GMT in Mount Street in the town.

The crew saw a crowd of about 10 young men close to the ambulance and then heard the front windscreen being smashed.

During the trouble it emerged that another man had been stabbed.

The crew involved in Tuesday's incident called the PSNI and the stabbing was discovered when they were able to leave their vehicle.

Another ambulance was sent to the scene and the first crew immediately treated the victim of the stabbing.
