Pennsylvania Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon was carjacked in Philadelphia on Wednesday.

In a statement posted to her official Twitter account, Scanlon’s office confirmed that the attack took place at around 2:45 p.m., and the congresswoman was “unharmed.” The politician was leaving a meeting in FDR Park at the time of the incident.
