Queens Democratic Rep. Grace Meng said in a statement this afternoon she was not seriously injured after she was attacked and robbed in Washington, D.C. Tuesday evening.

Meng’s office said in a statement she resumed regular activities on Wednesday following a trip to George Washington University Hospital for a CAT scan.

Her office says Meng was walking to her apartment after having dinner at a D.C. restaurant when she was struck in the back of her head near Sixth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue.

Meng’s attacker stole the lawmaker’s handbag and then fled on foot. Meng suffered a bruised chin following the attack.

“While this was a frightening ordeal, I fortunately was not seriously injured,” Meng said in a statement. “Obviously, things could have been much worse. I thank the U.S. Capitol Police and the District of Columbia Police for responding quickly and professionally.”

Meng, elected last year, is a former state assemblywoman.
