21:03 31.08.2023

In a shocking turn of events, a woman in Florida was apprehended on Wednesday afternoon after allegedly stealing an ambulance from a local hospital. The incident unfolded at the HCA Florida St. Lucie Hospital in Port St. Lucie. According to the Port St. Lucie Police Department's Facebook post, 25-year-old Marquisa Allen took advantage of an unoccupied ambulance while medical personnel were inside dropping off a patient. The brazen act took place while Allen was sitting on a nearby beach, still dressed in her hospital gown.

Fortunately, the ambulance was equipped with a GPS tracker, allowing law enforcement to quickly locate the stolen vehicle. Florida Highway Patrol Troopers closed in on Allen, prompting her to make a desperate attempt to flee. However, her escape was short-lived as she decided to exit the ambulance and run before ultimately being apprehended by the authorities.

Upon her arrest, Allen was booked on multiple charges, including giving false information to the police, driving with a suspended license, and resisting arrest without violence. However, it seems that her legal woes may not end there, as police have hinted that additional charges may be filed against her.

In a separate incident in Florida, a high school in Clearwater was rocked by a stabbing on Thursday morning. The Clearwater Police Department reported that two students were injured in the incident, which occurred at Countryside High School. Both victims were promptly transported to a local hospital for medical treatment.

The suspect in the stabbing, identified as a fellow student, was swiftly taken into custody by law enforcement. Clearwater Police Chief Eric Gandy reassured the community that there was no further threat of danger to the school and that students were held in their classes to preserve the crime scene. The identities of the victims were also disclosed, with one being in the 9th grade and the other in the 11th grade.

As news of the incident spread, concerned parents were notified of their children's condition. Fortunately, both victims are said to be in stable condition, bringing some relief to their families and the wider community.

In light of these unsettling events, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has praised the state's response to the recent hurricane and expressed cautious optimism that the damage caused by Hurricane Ian in 2022 would be less devastating. Governor DeSantis' remarks come as the state continues to recover from the aftermath of the powerful storm.

As investigations into both the ambulance theft and high school stabbing continue, authorities are working diligently to gather all the necessary evidence. Police have not ruled out the possibility of filing additional charges in both cases, ensuring that justice is served for all those affected.

In a state known for its sunny beaches and vibrant communities, these incidents serve as a sobering reminder of the challenges faced by law enforcement and the importance of maintaining public safety.
