- Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Monday a member of his staff was “brutally attacked in broad daylight” this weekend in Washington, D.C., adding a suspect has been arrested and he is “praying for a speedy and complete recovery” for the staffer.
- The statement came shortly after D.C. Metropolitan Police said in a news release a suspect had been arrested and charged with “Assault with Intent to Kill” related to a Saturday afternoon stabbing in the 1300 block of H Street, Northeast, about 1.5 miles from the Capitol.
- The D.C. Metropolitan Police didn’t specify whether the victim in Saturday’s stabbing was a congressional staffer, but the victim’s name matches the name of a staff member on one of Paul’s Senate committees.
