Paul Pelosi, Nancy Pelosi’s Husband, Attacked
Paul Pelosi, the husband of US House Speaker of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, was attacked with a hammer at the couple’s San Francisco home.
The intruder shouted “Where is Nancy?” and said he was going to wait for the speaker to return home, according to a source briefed on the attack.
Pelosi, 82, underwent surgery for a skull fracture and serious injuries to his right arm and hands, according to a statement from the speaker’s office.
President Joe Biden described the attack as “despicable” and directly tied it to growing strains of rightwing extremism.
The suspect, David DePape, faces multiple felony charges, including attempted homicide and assault with a deadly weapon.
The man alleged to have attacked Paul Pelosi on Friday morning is expected to be arraigned Tuesday, San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins tweeted Friday evening.
David DePape is accused of entering Pelosi’s house and hitting him with a hammer.
“We are coordinating closely with federal and local law enforcement partners on this investigation. We will bring forward multiple felony charges on Monday and expect DePape to be arraigned on Tuesday. DePape will be held accountable for his heinous crimes,” she wrote.
San Francisco Police Chief William Scott said the suspect is still in the hospital, as of Friday night, but will be booked into jail on felony charges.
