Live Boston reports a man walked up to a Boston EMT responding to a call at Blue Hill Avenue and Seaver Street, took out a knife and lunged at him around 11:25 p.m. on Thursday.
The EMT managed to evade the man, who had no known connection to the call, and his knife and called out for help. Police on scene promptly arrested Kion Thomas, 43, of Roxbury, on a charge of aggravated assault on an EMT.
