Late on Sunday night, Secret Service agents assigned to protect President Biden’s granddaughter, Naomi Biden, took action to prevent a break-in involving an unmarked Secret Service vehicle. Here’s what happened:

Around 11:58 p.m., Secret Service agents discovered three individuals attempting to break into a parked, unoccupied government vehicle near Naomi Biden’s home in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The agents intervened, and during the encounter, one of the agents discharged a service weapon. Fortunately, no one was injured in the incident.

The culprits quickly fled the scene in a red vehicle, and law enforcement issued a regional alert to assist in locating them. There was no threat to any protectees during this incident, and both the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department and the Secret Service are conducting an investigation.

A neighbor reported that the street was quiet around 11 p.m., about an hour before the attempted break-in. The Secret Service has dedicated parking spots and monitors the area closely, so the incident was noticed promptly.

Carjackings and car thefts have been on the rise in Washington, D.C., with over 750 carjackings and more than 6,000 stolen vehicles reported in the past year. Even lawmakers have been impacted, with U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar being carjacked at gunpoint near the Capitol recently.

The D.C. Police Department has issued safety recommendations, including keeping doors locked, driving in the center lane to deter carjackers, avoiding driving alone, and not stopping to assist strangers whose cars have broken down.

Naomi Biden, the eldest daughter of Hunter Biden, had her wedding at the White House last fall and moved to Georgetown after her honeymoon in the Seychelles. She has been in the news for her alleged involvement in vandalizing the U.S. Capitol in 2011 as a Senate page and her work for the government of Peru, despite allegations of corruption related to her family’s foreign business ventures.
