US Senator Rand Paul Attack At His Kentucky Home, Suspect Arrested

KSP: Sen. Rand Paul victim of assault

Kelsey Cooper, Paul's Kentucky communications director, said in a statement: "Senator Paul was blindsided and the victim of an assault".

US Senator Rand Paul has suffered minor injuries after being attacked in his Kentucky home on Saturday.

It is not known if Senator Paul knew his attacker. The charge of fourth-degree assault is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to 12 months in jail.

Paul's office did not immediately respond to BuzzFeed News request for comment, but a spokeswoman for the senator told the Bowling Green Daily News, "Senator Paul is fine".

Police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the alleged assault, CNN reports. CBS News notes it's unclear what connection, if any, there is between Paul and Boucher and whether the assault happened inside or outside Paul's home.
