Police arrested a man who entered the district office of Democratic Representative Gerry Connolly of Virginia after he attacked two members of his staff with a baseball bat.

Mr Connolly released a statement on Monday saying that the person who committed the attack is now in the custody of the City of Fairfax Police Department after causing non-life-threatening injuries to the staffers.

“Right now, our focus is on ensuring they are receiving the care they need,” Mr Connolly said.

The attacker reportedly visited Mr Connolly’s district office and asked for the congressman while holding the baseball bat before attacking the two staffers.
