Police are looking to arrest a vandal who covered a paramedic’s vehicle with paint and feces as he was helping an injured person, police in the United Kingdom said.

Leicestershire police said that the unidentified paramedic had been responding to an emergency call at a home in Bagworth on Monday night, when his vehicle was attacked and destroyed.

He discovered that the car had been damaged when he returned to it after treating the patient. The damage was so severe that he had to wear gloves to get into his car.

The emergency vehicle was taken off the road for repairs, which could take weeks.

According to the police investigation, the paramedic was treating the patient for half an hour before returning to his vehicle.

He found his car covered in red paint and feces, including on all four door handles. The paramedic was uninjured in the attack.

He was however, upset and disturbed by the nature of the attack. It will cost the Emergency Medical Service 200 pounds for each day the vehicle is off the road.
