Metropolitan Department of Police, Angie Craig described that her first encounter with the assailant was in the lobby of her building, where she found the perpetrator acting erratic almost as if he was under the influence of some substance. She went forward to greet the man with “good morning” and went along her way as he followed her into the elevator where he absurdly started doing push-ups out of nowhere.
The unknown assailant lunged at lawmaker Angie Craig punching her on the chin whilst grabbing her throat, as reported by the police. The congresswoman luckily threw her hot coffee at him in an attempt to defend herself which led to the attacker fleeing off the scene.
In the press release with Angie Craig, she disclosed nothing but just said she has been having a rough morning. Further details of the incident remained closed. Nick Coe has asked to respect Angie’s privacy in the given situation.
