Paul Pelosi, husband to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was attacked in his San Francisco home. The assailant was searching for his wife shouting “Where is Nancy” before coming at Paul Pelosi with a hammer.

“The motive for this attack is still being determined,” said San Francisco Police Chief William Scott at a press briefing.

“Our officers observed Mr. Pelosi and the suspect both holding a hammer,” Scott said. “The suspect pulled the hammer away from Mr. Pelosi and violently assaulted him with it. Our officers immediately tackled the suspect, disarmed him, took him into custody, requested emergency backup and rendered medical aid.”

The shouts that were heard in the house were the same chants during the January 6, 2021 insurrection at the Capitol. Many at that time were also looking for the speaker while trying to stop Joe Biden’s election.

Police responded to this incident at 2:27AM and both men were seen holding the hammer.

The 82-year-old had suffered blunt force injuries to the head and body. Pelosi was admitted to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital for the blunt force trauma and his condition was not immediately available.

The suspect is being charged with attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, and elder abuse.

Many are raising questions regarding safety when it comes to other people of Congress and their loved ones as well. Threats to any politician are at an all time high since the Capitol Insurrection, and this attack comes just eleven days ahead of the scheduled election.
