Paul Pelosi San Francisco attack: What to know about violent home invasion


Paul Pelosi, business executive and husband of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, was “violently assaulted” by someone who broke into the couple’s San Francisco home on Friday morning, a spokesperson said in a press release. 

Pelosi, 82, was assaulted just before 2:30 a.m. Friday at the couple’s multimillion-dollar San Francisco estate by an attacker armed with a hammer, according to officials and reports. Nancy Pelosi was not present in the home at the time. 

“Early this morning, an assailant broke into the Pelosi residence in San Francisco and violently assaulted Mr. Pelosi,” Drew Hammill, spokesman for House Speaker Pelosi. “The assailant is in custody and the motivation for the attack is under investigation.”

The Associated Press reported Pelosi was severely beaten with a hammer and suffered blunt force injuries. He was taken to a nearby hospital and was “expected to make a full recovery,” Hamill said. 

The United States Capitol Police is working with the FBI and the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) in the investigation, and said Nancy Pelosi was in Washington, D.C. with her security detail at the time of the break-in.

A SFPD spokesperson said the city’s top police officer would hold a press conference later on Friday. FBI agents could be seen at the home on Friday morning. 

Paul Pelosi was most recently in the headlines after he pleaded guilty to DUI charges stemming from a May car crash in California.

Additionally, the couple’s sprawling Pacific Heights home has been the subject of attacks in the past. 

Local news station KRON4 reported that vandals targeted the street-side residence in January 2021, when they covered the garage in spray-painted messages. Photos included in the KRON4 report also show what appear to be a pig’s head and fake blood.
