A suspect has been arrested in Thursday morning’s assault on a U.S. House member in her Washington apartment building.
According to ABC News, 26-year-old Kendrick Hamlin has been arrested in the attack and charged with simple assault.
Rep. Angie Craig, Minnesota Democrat had been attacked in the building elevator and suffered some bruises but was not seriously hurt.
Nick Coe, Ms. Craig’s chief of staff, said in a statement that there was no evidence the attack was politically motivated.
“Rep. Craig is grateful to the DC Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) for their quick response and asks for privacy at this time,” Mr. Coe said.
According to the police report obtained by ABC News, Ms. Craig saw a man acting as if “as if he was under the influence on an unknown substance” as she entered the building around 7:15 a.m.
