Just before 1 a.m. Friday, Engine 60 from the Sacramento Fire Department was dispatched to the Mobil gas station at 8461 Folsom Blvd., for a male with a severe leg laceration.

Moments after Engine 60 arrived, they called for emergency back-up from law enforcement as they were actively being assaulted by the patient, according to radio reports.

Engine 60's crew backed out and waited down the street for officers to arrive and secure the situation.

Arriving officers located the subject walking down the street in front of the Folsom Boulevard Flea Market and were able to calm the subject. Officers began treating him while Engine 60's crew returned to the scene to take over medical care. The leg wound was bandaged and he was transported to the hospital by Medic 62.
