Video footage emerged on Tuesday showing the moment that a staffer for Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) was brutally stabbed in Democrat-controlled Washington, D.C.

The Washington Post obtained the footage of Glynn Neal allegedly attacking Phillip Todd back in March after Todd left a restaurant with a friend.

Todd and his friend were walking out of the frame of the video when the suspect charges in and tackles Todd to the ground and begins repeatedly stabbing him.

“What the f***,” a voice on camera says before Todd’s friend rushes in to get the suspect off of him. The two men then run away as the suspect gets up and leaves in the opposite direction.

WARNING — the following video contains content some viewers may find disturbing:

Neal was charged with assault with intent to kill using a knife, a felony. Court records indicate that Neal was released from federal prison roughly 24 hours before the attack.

Neal remains in jail while continuing to undergo “a series of psychological evaluations before his next court appearance in September” after he was deemed unfit to stand trial, according to Fox 29.


“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,” Todd’s parents said back in March after the attack. “In return, we ask 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,” they continued. “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).”
