Nancy Pelosi’s Husband Attacked During Home Invasion, Suspect in Custody

NTD | by Zachary Stieber | October 28, 2022

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband was attacked in the early hours of Oct. 28 during a home invasion, Pelosi’s office says.

A person broke into the Pelosi home in San Francisco and “violently assaulted” Paul Pelosi, 82, Nancy Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said in a statement.

Paul Pelosi was rushed to a hospital, where he is being treated and was expected to make a full recovery.

Nancy Pelosi was not in San Francisco at the time. She was in Washington with her protective detail, according to the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP).

The assailant was taken into custody and police are investigating the motivation for the crimes, authorities said. The suspect has not been identified.

“The motivation for the attack is still under investigation,” the Capitol Police said.

The San Francisco Police Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Capitol Police said it is assisting police in San Francisco and FBI agents with a joint investigation into the break-in.

“Special Agents with the USCP’s California Field Office quickly arrived on scene, while a team of investigators from the Department’s Threat Assessment Section was simultaneously dispatched from the East Coast to assist the FBI and the San Francisco Police with a joint investigation,” the agency said.

Nancy Pelosi and her family “are grateful to the first responders and medical professionals involved, and request privacy at this time,” Hammill said.

San Francisco, like many U.S. cities, has been dealing with a spike in crime in recent years.

Nancy Pelosi has served in Congress since 1987.

Paul Pelosi is a businessman and venture capitalist.

He pleaded guilty to driving while under the influence in August. He reached a plea agreement that saw him avoid additional jail time. He had served four days in jail.
