In February, Democratic Rep. Angie Craig of Minnesota suffered bruises in an attack at her apartment building.

The Metropolitan Police Department posted on its website that Kendrick Hamlin, 26, was arrested and charged with simple assault.

According to WUSA-TV, Craig spotted Hamlin in the lobby of the building where she has an apartment. He entered an elevator after she did. At some point, Craig was punched on the chin and grabbed by the neck. Craig threw her hot coffee at her attacker, giving her the opportunity to escape from the elevator.
