BALTIMORE (WJZ/AP) — A paralegal for the U.S. Attorney’s Office was attacked outside a federal courthouse Monday morning, police said.

The 24-year-old man was attacked around 10:22 a.m. in the 100 block of West Lombard Street.

The victim was punched, and examined at a hospital before being released.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland, Marcia Murphy, says the attack isn’t believed to be related to any cases. She says U.S. Attorney Robert Hur has told staff to take precautions, including encouraging them not to travel alone.
