Early Monday morning, Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was “violently assaulted” in his San Francisco home. The attacker is reported to have used a hammer in the attack and Pelosi was severely beaten and suffered blunt force injuries. Nancy Pelosi has been in Washington D.C. this week and was not present during the incident.
“Early this morning, an assailant broke into the Pelosi residence in San Francisco and violently assaulted Mr. Pelosi,” spokesperson Drew Hammill said. “The assailant is in custody and the motivation for the attack is under investigation.” Hammill added, “Mr. Pelosi was taken to the hospital, where he is receiving excellent medical care and is expected to make a full recovery. The Speaker and her family are grateful to the first responders and medical professionals involved, and request privacy at this time.”
A spokesman for the San Francisco Police Department told Fox News at the time that officers responded to the reported vandalism around 2 a.m. Friday. “Unidentified suspect(s) had painted graffiti on the garage door and left a pig’s head on the sidewalk,” they said.
