A Senate staffer was brutally stabbed in Northeast over the weekend, according to a statement released by the elected official they work for.
Senator Rand Paul issued a statement Monday regarding the incident.
"This past weekend a member of my staff was brutally attacked in broad daylight in Washington, D.C.
I ask you to join Kelley and me in praying for a speedy and complete recovery, and thanking the first responders, hospital staff, and police for their diligent actions," the statement reads.
The victim, who Senator Paul says works for him, was found suffering from stab wounds in the area.
Federal Bureau of Prisons records show Neal was released from prison on Friday – the day before the stabbing.
He spent nearly 12 Years behind bars for compelling two North Carolina women to engage in prostitution through the use of threats. »
