FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- A 37-year-old Bridgeport woman was rescued from the middle of a busy intersection by officers Monday and transported to St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport, Fairfield police said.

Eight Fairfield squad cars responded to Tunxis Hill Road and Villa Avenue in Fairfield at about 1:45 p.m. March 3, after an officer on patrol reported that a woman was standing in the middle of the road, foaming at the mouth and urinating in public, according to police said.

Officers who responded to the call said the woman was also shouting “ISIS is here, ISIS is here,” police said.

Police, who were able to get in touch with the woman’s sister, said the incident may have been induced because the woman hadn’t taken medication for her mental illness.
