GOP Rep. Brad Finstad revealed that a staffer in his office was attacked by an armed gunman after the annual congressional baseball game blocks away from the Capitol.

‘Following Wednesday’s Congressional Baseball Game for Charity, one of my staffers was attacked outside of his residence by an armed gunman,’ Finstad, R-Minn., said in a statement. 

‘Thankfully, he will be able to make a full recovery and the extent of his physical injuries was minor. I thank the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department for their quick response and their attention to this incident.’

DailyMail.com has learned the staffer is in his late 20s and is part of the legislative team. As he was walking toward the entrance of his Navy Yard apartment building two men, one of whom was carrying a gun, approached the staffer and pushed him to the ground. He was not shot but suffered cuts and bruises and was able to get away and call the police.

The GOP congressman tore into Washington, D.C.’s ‘soft-on-crime’ policies. 

‘In Washington, D.C. and cities across the country, anti-police, soft-on-crime policies have created lawless societies that endanger the public and empower criminal behavior. It’s time we started treating criminals like criminals and bring back commonsense policies that imprison career criminals, keep the public safe, and allow our police officers to adequately protect our communities and keep violent criminals off the streets.’  

Finstad himself played at second base in the congressional baseball game, where Republicans prevailed over Democrats 16-6.

Crime is on the rise in the district: vehicle theft is up 120 percent, violent crime is up 21 percent, and total crime is up 28 percent at at this point in 2023 compared to 2022. 

Last month a suspect wielding a baseball bat left two staffers for Democratic Rep. Gerry Connelly in the hospital after a brutal attack in his Virginia office in a D.C. suburb. 

Before that a staffer to Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., was stabbed in broad daylight in northeast D.C. 

The apparently random attack took place on H Street – a busy commercial hub lined with bars and restaurants.
