The San Francisco police have assured that Paul Pelosi managed to call the emergency service, but could not directly report what happened. So some agents went to monitor the area and found a man confronting Paul Pelosi. They both held a hammer.
“Suspect took Pelosi’s hammer from her and violently attacked her with it. Our officers immediately boarded the suspect, disarmed him and took him into custody,” said San Francisco Police Department Chief Bill Scott.
Scott reported that the suspect is David DePape, 42, noting that this man entered by force through a back door of the house from Pelosi.
Charges will be filed in the San Francisco County Jail, which include attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, robbery and other serious crimes.
The police chief has assured that the police were still investigating the reason, but that “this it was not a random act, it was intentional”.
