The Swiss ambassador to the United States was assaulted inside his DC residence by an intruder, court documents show.
The shocking home invasion occurred around 2 p.m. Monday at the ambassador’s home, which is attached to the embassy, according to the records.
The suspect, Christian David Mandeville of Oregon, had pushed his way into the residence, the documents said.
A male Secret Service agent was then called to the location — with Mandeville still inside, the documents said.
The agent went into the home with the ambassador, Jacques Pitteloud, whose name does not appear in the court documents.
They came upon the suspect, and when the diplomat made a move to try to block Mandeville, the suspect “used his arms to knock away the Ambassador’s arms,’’ the papers said.
“Mandeville then used his body to try and push his way past the Ambassador. His actions pushed the Ambassador backward,’’ the documents said.
