(Minneapolis, MN)  --  A Minnesota legislator says she was hurt recently after being carjacked by a group of armed men near her Minneapolis home.  

DFL Second Vice Chairwoman Shivanthi Sathanandan was attacked Tuesday in the driveway of her Minneapolis home.  

She suffered a broken leg, deep cuts on her head, and cuts and bruises all over her body.  

Police say the lawmaker's vehicle was later abandoned by the suspects and recovered.

Following the death of George Floyd in 2020, Sathanandan vowed to "dismantle" the Minneapolis Police Department.
