Terror At Home: U.S. Speaker’s Husband, Paul Pelosi, Had Surgery For Skull Fracture Repair After Home Attack, Had “Serious Injuries To His Right Arm And Hands”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul “underwent successful surgery to repair a skull fracture and serious injuries to his right arm and hands,” following an attack at their San Francisco home, according to the California Democrat’s spokesperson.

The attack early Friday morning came amid an uptick in threats against members of Congress and a series of security incidents over the summer.

The suspect — who police identified as 42-year-old David DePape — was looking for the speaker, per a source briefed on the attack. The source said that before the attack, DePape confronted Paul Pelosi, shouting, “Where is Nancy, where is Nancy?”

  • Paul Pelosi’s doctors expect him to make a “full recovery,” the House speaker’s spokesperson Drew Hammill said in a statement.
  • DePape will be charged with multiple felonies including attempted homicide for allegedly attacking Paul Pelosi, the 82-year-old husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, early Friday morning at their San Francisco home, San Francisco Police Chief William Scott said during a news conference Friday.
  • DePape attacked Paul Pelosi with a hammer in front of officers after they arrived for a “wellbeing check” at around 2:30 am local time, per Scott.
  • Nancy Pelosi was not in San Francisco at the time of the attack, Hammill said earlier Friday.
  • In a later statement, Hammill said Paul Pelosi “underwent successful surgery to repair a skull fracture and serious injuries to his right arm and hands.” He is expected to make a “full recovery,” Hammill added.

Details: DePape will be charged with attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, burglary, and “several other additional felonies,” per Scott, who said the motive for the attack is still being determined.

  • “[DePape] pulled the hammer away from Mr. Pelosi and violently assaulted him with it,” Scott said. The officers “immediately tackled [DePape], disarmed him, took him into custody, requested emergency backup, and rendered medical aid.”
  • Both Paul Pelosi and DePape were transferred to a local hospital early Friday, Scott said.
