CAPE TOWN - Western Cape Emergency Services says there have been 45 attacks on paramedics since the start of the year.

In the latest case, two paramedics were ambushed in Paarl East on Saturday.

The attack follows similar incidents in Harare and Parow over the weekend.

The two paramedics were accosted by a knife-wielding gang, after they responded to a stabbing incident in Paarl East.

Western Cape Ambulance chief Phumzile Papu says they were threatened and the vehicle was damaged.

"Some of them then stood in front of the ambulance, some of them were hanging on the side of the ambulance. He drove about more than 300m, the other guy was still hanging there shouting that this guy must stop this ambulance. It looks like it is the same people that stabbed him that were coming for him again."

No arrests have been made.

It's one of four attacks on emergency medical personnel in Cape Town over the weekend.
