The ambulance service reported that at around 4am today, a St John ambulance bus was held-up at gun point in Morata.
“Significant damage was inflicted upon our staff and vehicle, including indiscriminate theft of property,” St John said in a statement.
Commissioner Matthew Cannon said: “I am disgusted by this indiscriminate attack on my colleagues.
“Our ambulance men and women put their own lives at risk to help others every hour of the day; they choose to do this well aware of the ever-present and worsening dangers in this city.
“We will be pursuing those involved to the full extent of the law.”
Meantime, a crisis meeting took place this morning with community leaders led by St John Inspector Jethro Philemon, Duty Operations Manager.
A full statement will be given later today as more information comes to hand.
