Pelosi’s attacker is charged with attempted murder.

House attacker Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, is charged with attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse and other charges, a San Francisco police spokesman said Friday at a press briefing.

“The suspect is charged with attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, abuse of an elderly person and other charges,” the policeman said at a press briefing.


Speaking about the identity of the suspect, the officer said that he turned out to be 42-year-old David DePape and noted that the motive for the attack is still being investigated.


Pelosi’s press office said on Friday that an unidentified man broke into the couple’s home in San Francisco, California, as a result of which the speaker’s husband, Paul Pelosi, was attacked. The congresswoman herself was not in Washington at that moment.
