Suspect to appear in court after EMT stabbed multiple times by patient An EMT was stabbed while responding to an incident on New Chardron Street in downtown Boston on Wednesday afternoon. The female EMT was stabbed multiple times inside of an ambulance by a patient according to information obtained by 5 Investigates. The EMT, a 14-year veteran of the department, was rushed to nearby Massachusetts General Hospital and was reported to have serious but non-life-threatening injuries. "Our first responder family faces dangers every day," Boston Police Chief William Gross said. "There is no such thing as a routine call." Police said a female suspect, later identified as 31-year-old Julie Tejeda, was arrested.

A woman says she was sexually assaulted in two Philadelphia hospital rooms after undergoing a lengthy surgery.

Rose Tummarello, 28, of Bucks County said she was assaulted after a nine-hour surgery in a surgery room and then a recovery room by a hospital employee as her parents stood, unaware, outside the door.

“I thought I was in the safest place, you're in a hospital, you think you're in such a safe place and nothing will happen,” Tummarello told WPVI. “He shut all the curtains and decided to take the sheet off of me. Told me he had to fix the heart monitor that I did not have on. And he was groping me and just like kissing on my neck, and then finally he decided, 'OK. let's go to your room,'” Tummarello said in the interview. Then, she alleges, more misconduct took place, again kissing her neck and groping her. Tummarello said she was sedated, but found the energy to call for her parents.

(Credit: NYPD Crime Stoppers) According to police, a man walked into the store and stole clothes, but a female employee tried to stop him. In surveillance video, she can be seen holding onto the collar of his shirt. According to police, the suspect grabbed the woman and threw her to the floor. The victim refused medical attention.

“As they were like coming in, he was whispering in my ear, 'Just wait till they leave and we can have more fun,'” Tummarello said, telling the outlet that she's coming forward now because she believes her assaulter has likely abused other patients.

The hospital worker, Rafael Alicea, 41, is now facing charges including institutional sex assault and indecent assault, and no longer works at the hospital. His job, according to the report, was to transport her from the surgery room to her recovery room. Alicea denies the claims, saying through an attorney that he has never been accused of misconduct during a decade of employment.
