Paul Pelosi, Speaker’s Husband, ‘Severely Beaten’ With Hammer: Report

Paul Pelosi, 82, the husband of the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, was attacked with a hammer inside the couple’s San Francisco home in the early morning hours.

The 82-year old suffered “blunt force trauma to his head and body,” the Associated Press reports.

There is no known motive for the attack, but the assailant is in custody.

The Speaker was not in the home at the time of the assault.

“In 2021, Capitol Police investigated around 9,600 threats made against members of Congress, and members have been violently attacked in recent years,” the AP adds. “Capitol Police, tasked with protecting congressional leaders, said Nancy Pelosi was with her protective detail in Washington at the time her husband was attacked.”

UPDATE: 10:36 AM ET
San Francisco Police Dept. Public Information Officer Sergeant Adam Lobsinger says the SFPD Chief will hold a press conference, time currently unknown.

This is a breaking news and developing story.
