Police: Armed person stole ambulance with patient inside


HOUSTON (AP) — Houston police say an armed suspect stole an ambulance early Friday while a patient and a firefighter were inside.

The department says in a series of tweets that a driver ran the ambulance off the road.

Then, a firefighter behind the wheel was forced out of the ambulance at gunpoint and left on the side of the road.

A patient and another firefighter were in the back of the vehicle.

Authorities say they used a GPS to track down the ambulance.

The armed suspect has been taken into custody without incident.
