Washington, D.C. – In a late-night incident in the Georgetown neighborhood, Secret Service agents safeguarding President Joe Biden’s granddaughter, Naomi Biden, took decisive action when three individuals attempted to break into an unmarked Secret Service vehicle.
Late on Sunday night, the vigilant agents observed the unauthorized intrusion as the perpetrators targeted a parked and unoccupied SUV, breaking one of its windows. The law enforcement official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, revealed that the agents immediately responded to the security threat.
In the course of the incident, one of the agents discharged their weapon in an effort to thwart the break-in. Fortunately, no injuries were reported as a result of the gunfire. The three individuals hastily fled the scene in a red car. The Secret Service promptly issued a regional bulletin to the Metropolitan Police to aid in apprehending the suspects.
The surge in carjackings and vehicle thefts in Washington this year has raised concerns about public safety. With over 750 reported carjackings and more than 6,000 stolen vehicle incidents, the city faces an unprecedented challenge. Last month, U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas fell victim to a carjacking near the Capitol, underscoring the gravity of the situation.
Violent crime rates in the nation’s capital have also experienced a worrisome spike, marking an increase of over 40% compared to the previous year. In February, U.S. Rep. Angie Craig of Minnesota became a target of assault within her apartment building, sustaining bruises but managing to escape serious injury.
This incident serves as a stark reminder of the ongoing security challenges faced by public figures and their families. The Secret Service continues to play a crucial role in safeguarding the nation’s leaders and their relatives, demonstrating their unwavering commitment to preserving the safety and well-being of those under their protection.
