A spokesman for U.S. Sen. Bob Corker says the Tennessee Republican's daughter was carjacked in Washington, D.C., though she was not seriously injured.

Spokesman Todd Womack says the 22-year-old woman was on her way to the family's apartment Wednesday night when she stopped at an intersection and was approached by someone.

Womack says she rolled down the window, was dragged from the car and thrown to the ground. He said Thursday that she was sore but not seriously hurt. Womack says the senator had arrived at the scene within minutes.

Sgt. Leroy Patterson of the Seat Pleasant, Md., police department says officers found the Chevy Tahoe later that night and took two suspects into custody. He would not release their names.
