Sixth and Louisiana streets
•Two Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical paramedics had to abandon their ambulance near downtown Friday afternoon when police say a man being transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital pulled a knife on them.

According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Bill Cory, said the man was detained inside the ambulance and no one was injured in the ordeal. He was later transported to LMH.

The man was transported to a Kansas City-area hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries.
