Rep. Pat Ryan says a crowd attempted to forcibly enter the district office in Kingston on Friday.
Ryan says the crowd climbed the roof of the building, interrupted work with constituents and threatened his staff.
News 12 reached out to police for more information but had not received any as of Friday evening.
The incident happened after Ryan's office was vandalized right before Christmas
In a statement posted to 'X,' Ryan says in part, "Free speech is foundational to our democracy. It's a core American freedom I risked my life to protect. But forcibly entering and vandalizing federal property is not free speech and gets us no closer to lasting peace."
