Parents of Rand Paul’s Staffer Who Was Brutally Attacked Issue Hopeful Statement

The parents of Phillip Todd, the staffer for Republican Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) who was brutally stabbed in broad daylight in Washington D.C., released a statement about their son’s condition.

They said: “As the parents of Phillip Todd, we would like to give an update on our son’s condition, which will hopefully answer many of the questions we’ve received.

“In return, we ask you to respect our privacy and the privacy of our extended family so that we can focus on our son’s recovery.

“He was randomly and brutally attacked by a person armed with a knife, who, according to the police report, attempted to kill him. The intervention of our son’s friend helped prevent the wounds from being fatal.

“Our son is in a stable condition, having undergone trauma surgery to address the wounds in his body.

“He also has a fracture on his skull, which will be treated with non-invasive neurosurgery.

“He is expected to make a full recovery due to his young age and good health.

“Our son and our family draw strength from our faith to see us through this challenging time.

“Phillip is conscious and alert and has repeatedly stated, ‘the joy of the Lord is my strength’ (Nehemiah 8:10).

“We are impressed with the professionalism of the Washington D.C. police department in capturing the attacker, with the EMS and first responders’ quick response at the scene, and with the staff at the hospital in treating our son’s injuries.

“Most of all, we are impressed with the love and support of Phillip’s many friends, the Antioch Church, Washington D.C., his current and former colleagues, and even those Phillip doesn’t know personally.

“We are thankful for Senator Paul and his Chief of Staff for making a personal visit to encourage Phillip, and Senate Chaplain Reverend Black for praying over Phillip, and everyone who has reached out with prayers and offers to help.

“Our hope is that Washington D.C. continues to be the safe and beautiful city our son loves so much,” they said.
