Swiss ambassador to U.S. assaulted by intruder in D.C. home

The Swiss ambassador to the U.S. was assaulted inside his home, attached to his nation’s embassy.

The New York Post reported Tuesday, citing police documents, that the incident happened around 2 p.m. Monday in the Cathedral Avenue home in Washington’s Northwest quadrant.

Suspect Christian David Mandeville of Oregon had pushed his way into the residence and got into a physical altercation with Ambassador Jacques Pitteloud, the Post reported.

The suspect “used his arms to knock away the Ambassador’s arms. Mandeville then used his body to try and push his way past the Ambassador. His actions pushed the Ambassador backward,’’ the documents say, according to the New York paper.
