The first-term congresswoman was attacked and robbed Tuesday night near the Capitol in Washington as she headed to her apartment after dinner, Washington publication The Hill reported.
"While this was a frightening ordeal, I fortunately was not seriously injured," Meng said. "Obviously, things could have been much worse. I thank the U.S. Capitol Police and the District of Columbia Police for responding quickly and professionally."
Meng's injuries included a bruised chin. She underwent a CAT scan at George Washington University Hospital.
The incident meant she missed two votes Wednesday, but she was back at work later in the day.
No arrests had been made.
