Next time, this thief might want to see proof of a security clearance.
An attempted mugging on Capitol Hill was thwarted Monday night by a quick-thinking victim — one who apparently keeps an eye on national security news.
The victim was walking home to her Capitol Hill townhouse when she was violently confronted by a man in the dark, grassy area between the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Heritage Foundation.
The assailant grabbed the victim’s arm and demanded her wallet and phone. “I said the first thing I could think of,” the victim, who asked to remain nameless, told the Washington Examiner.
