“The man is suspected of violence against a public official and causinig damage. From what we can tell he attacked one of the ambulance personnel but the details are patchy,” said Patrik Skörvald at Västmanland police.
The ambulance was called to a restaurant in Surahammar just before 10pm on Friday following a disturbance.
“A man was walking around with a hammer, but two of my customers took it away from him. I think he had injured himself,” said an employee of the restaurant.
