CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (WWBT) -

The wife of Del. David Toscano (D-Charlottesville) was hit in the head multiple times at her home Monday night, and an acquaintance of the Toscano family is now under arrest.

Charlottesville Police arrested Claire Kennedy Ogilvie, 35, and charged her with Burglary, Abduction and Malicious Wounding.

Del. Toscano released a statement on the attack Tuesday:

My wife was assaulted at our home last evening by a person who we knew but had not seen for over a year. She was struck by her female assailant in the head several times but never lost consciousness. The assailant broke into our home. Our son was not home at the time.

I returned from Richmond and brought her to the hospital. She was treated and released and is resting comfortably. A full recovery from her injuries is expected.

The assailant has been apprehended and detained.

Since there is an ongoing investigation, we will have no further comment at this time. We hope that our privacy will be respected, and we appreciate people keeping us in their thoughts.

NBC29 reports that Ogilvie is being held without bond at the Charlottesville-Albemarle Regional Jail.
