Minnesota congresswoman Angie Craig defended herself by throwing hot coffee at a man who assaulted her Thursday morning in her Washington, D.C., apartment building, police said.
The DFL representative suffered bruising in the attack but is "otherwise physically OK," Nick Coe, her chief of staff, said in a statement. The DC police department announced Thursday night it had arrested a 26-year-old man with no fixed address for the assault.
"Rep. Craig called 911, and the assailant fled the scene of the assault," Coe said. "Rep. Craig is grateful to the DC Metropolitan Police Department for their quick response."
