As we reported earlier, a staffer for Rand Paul was brutally attacked in broad daylight in Washington, D.C. on Saturday and the news just broke on Monday, after Sen. Rand Paul announced it in a statement.
The staffer was walking down the street with a companion less than a mile and a half from the U.S. Capitol, when the suspect, Glynn Neal, 42, who was hiding in a corner allegedly “popped out of the corner and proceeded to stab (the victim) multiple times,” according to the police statement on the matter.
The staffer and the companion were able to take the attacker to the ground. The police arrived and found the staffer collapsed and bleeding, and suffering from stab wounds. He was taken to the hospital with “life-threatening” injuries, according to Fox 5 DC.
The suspect was arrested and later charged with Assault with Intent to Kill (with a knife).
MPD announces an arrest has been made in reference to an Assault with Intent to Kill (Knife) offense that occurred on Saturday, March 25, 2023, in the 1300 blk of H St, NE.
Thank you to all who assisted in making DC safer with this arrest!

The staffer has been identified as a 26 year old who worked on the Homeland Security Committee. He is in critical condition with stab wounds to the brain, lung, and ear, according to NBC reporter Tom Lynch.
It’s not clear yet if the fact that he was a Rand Paul staffer entered into the attack at all. Paul himself has been attacked multiple times, including when he was attacked by a neighbor and suffered six broken ribs as well as serious lung damage. Paul was also attacked by a leftist mob after the Republican National Convention in August 2020. He was also on the field when a leftist shot up the GOP baseball practice in 2017. Paul issued a statement praying for the staffer and thanking the first responders for their help.
Now it’s being reported that the suspect was just released from prison — the day before the attack. He was serving 12 years for serious crimes.

As Fox 5 DC reports:
Federal Bureau of Prisons records show Neal was released from prison on Friday – the day before the stabbing.
He spent nearly 12 years behind bars for compelling two North Carolina women to engage in prostitution through the use of threats.
He threatened them unless they agreed to prostitution and gave him the money from it.
What a lovely man. Why was this guy out at all? With that kind of record and crime, they should have been throwing away the key.
We keep seeing these issues over and over again where it appears there are violent incidents. Then, when more information comes out — it turns out that the person likely should never have been walking the street. Often, it’s because of lax leftist prosecutors. At least this guy got some time for his incredibly serious crimes. But, not enough, since he does this the day after he gets out.
You just can’t fix STUPID, but you can end it. All IS being REVEALED! The Whole Global Cabal, demoncRATs and RINOS, ALL SATAN’S DEMON SPAWN MINIONS DESERVE DIRT NAPS. NCSWIC, WWG1WGA, P.A.N.I.C. LGB,FJB! FGS! FWG! FWK! President Trump’s still my President. I’m not a BOT nor a Spammer. I’m a American Veteran, Trucker and GreatGrandpa. Yahweh save our poor souls Amen. WAKE UP PEOPLE WAKE UP!
We all know Demos & Soros are behind this just follow the money!!!!! Soooo corrupt
& rotten to try to kill their opponents – IT IS TIME TO PUT THESE RICH CRIMINALS IN PRISON WHERE THEY BELONG!!!! Republicans & Independants must unite & take action!!!!!!!
Now apparently the Leftist soreass demos can get hit-men released to do their bidding at will to do their wet work!!!
Whatever or whoever let this killer out of prison…whether it be by light sentence or parole…really needs to e charged as an accessory to the assault. These damned liberal judges and bureaucrats who give ridiculously light sentences, early paroles and who set tiny amounts of bail for those charged with heinous crimes should be made to pay the price for their perversion of the criminal justice system and for aiding and abetting felons.
Secondly, since the evildoers in our society do not fear or learn from the justice system, the police or from lenient judges and juries, the only thing that will make these types of crimes halt is when the perpetrators learn to fear their victims.
Stab wounds to the brain!!! This thug learned a lot in prison. I pray the victim he will be OK.
