“On Nov. 12 around 11:58 p.m. in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC, Secret Service agents encountered possibly three individuals breaking a window on a parked and unoccupied government vehicle,” Secret Service spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a statement.

“During this encounter, a federal agent discharged a service weapon, and it is believed no one was struck. The offenders immediately fled the scene in a red vehicle, and a regional lookout was issued to supporting units,” he said.

Washington, D.C., has experienced a significant surge in carjackings and car thefts this year. The alarming statistics paint a grim picture of the city’s security situation.

According to the Metropolitan Police, there have been over 750 reported carjackings and more than 6,000 stolen vehicle cases in the district. These numbers highlight the urgent need for enhanced security measures and collaborative efforts between law enforcement agencies.

Violent crime rates in Washington have been on a worrisome upward trajectory, with a staggering increase of over 40% compared to the previous year.

The incident involving Naomi Biden’s protection detail is not an isolated case. In the past month, U.S. Representative Henry Cuellar from Texas fell victim to a carjacking near the Capitol. Three armed assailants ambushed him, stealing his vehicle, and he escaped physical harm.
