Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon, D-Pa., was carjacked at gunpoint in a park in Philadelphia on Wednesday afternoon, her spokeswoman said in a statement.
The incident occurred around 2:45 p.m. ET at FDR Park in South Philadelphia, where Scanlon had been attending a meeting earlier in the afternoon, said the spokeswoman, Lauren Cox. Scanlon was unharmed, Cox said in a statement.
Two armed men approached Scanlon and demanded the keys to her vehicle – a blue 2017 Acura MDX. Scanlon surrendered the keys and one of the two men drove off with her Acura. The second man entered a separate vehicle and followed the first man, Philadelphia police said.
Here is the press release:
She previously has pushed anti-police bills:
The House passed the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act in March. The Senate must move with urgency to pass this bill and enact meaningful reform. We owe it to George Floyd and all those who have lost their lives at the hands of U.S. law enforcement. https://t.co/MyOJhu51pn
