Staffer for Senator Paul Attacked in D.C.

Phillip Todd stabbed on the streets in Washington, D.C.

Phillip Todd, a member of the staff of Senator Rand Paul, was stabbed in broad daylight on the streets of Washington, D.C. 

Senator Paul spoke to reporters about the details and called on cities to make their streets safer. “We are praying for his recovery,” the Senator said. “He’s young, strong, athletic. I think he’ll be better hopefully in a few weeks. But he’s had a lot to go through, multiple surgeries and these were life-threatening wounds. But we think he’s on the mend. It’s just going to take a while.” 

The attacker has been arrested on a charge of assault with intent to kill, the Metropolitan Police Department said. 

Senator Paul thanked the police, first responders and hospital staff for “their diligent actions.”  He said, “At this time we would ask for privacy so everyone can focus on healing and recovery.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For God’s healing hand to be onPhillip Todd as he recovers from this attack.  
  • For safety for all who are in the federal government and their staff as they serve the nation.
  • For Congress and state and local officials as they look for ways to address violent crimes nationwide.
