A man is under arrest after punching out the window of an ambulance and threatening Chicago medics.
The 25-year-old, whose identity was not being released immediately, faces charges of felony damage to property and two felony assault charges for threatening to shoot two paramedics, Town Hall District police Lt. Dragan Lakich told the Chicago Tribune.
The suspect was walking past a large crowd that had gathered around an injured man whom police said may have been robbed.
"He's walking by and he breaks the window of ambulance number 6 for an unknown reason," the lieutenant told reporters.
After shattering the side, glass window of the ambulance, the West Sider made things worse for himself.
"He told paramedics he was going to shoot them," Lakich said.
"It's not an easy thing to do. I've seen officers hit them with flashlights and not be able to break them," Lakich said. "They're pretty tough."
The suspect suffered a bloody wrist and ran away after the threats, but police found him about a half mile away.
