Sacramento Crew Met by Hostile Group Calls Police

Sacramento firefighters had to call on police for help Sunday night after a hostile group of people prevented them from assisting a patient.

A paramedic crew responded to a report of a person who stopped breathing the 2600 block of Traction Avenue around 9:45 p.m. when they were met by around 10 people who stopped them from entering an apartment building, according to The Sacramento Bee.

The police report states that a children's scooter was tossed at the firefighters at one point.

Once officers arrived, they too were blocked from the apartment after a wrought iron fence door was locked.

The officers scaled the fence in order to cover the firefighters.

The victim was eventually taken to a local hospital.

One person was arrested on suspicion of obstructing and delaying police.

No firefighters or police officers were injured in the incident.
