The hospital employee who was attacked and injured last year while treating a bank robbery suspect is suing the Ocala Police Department.

Attorney Adam J. Langino, from the Palm Beach Garden firm of Cohen, Milstein, Sellers & Toll, filed the complaint on behalf of Kimberly Lucas from Ocala Regional Medical Center on Sept. 19. Lucas seeks damages in excess of $15,000.

Lucas “is attempting to hold the Ocala Police Department accountable for the harms and losses she incurred due to Officer (Kenny) Mitchell’s careless decision to leave (suspect Jonathan Michael) Rollins alone with her, which was also against Ocala Police Department policy,” the suit says.
