Julia Corker, the 22-year-old daughter of Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), was carjacked last night.
Corker (second from left in photo) was driving a Chevy Tahoe SUV at 7th and D Streets NW, in Penn Quarter, when a man knocked on her window. She proceeded to roll down the window, and the man opened the door, grabbed her by the neck, and threw her to the pavement, WJLA-TV reports. She reportedly lost consciousness but “was not seriously injured.”
Luckily the Tahoe had OnStar!
Cops tracked the vehicle to Prince George’s County, and two were apprehended in Seat Pleasant. They will be charged in the District, CNN reports.
Kudos to the senator for not (yet) cutting loose on crime in the federal city. Rather, he “really appreciated the professionalism of the D.C. Police, the Capitol Police, the FBI and the Seat Pleasant Police,” his chief of staff told Politico.
