UPDATED 11/3, 7:20 p.m. ETPaul Pelosi, husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has been released from the hospital.

“The Pelosi family is thankful for the beautiful outpouring of love, support and prayers from around the world,” Nancy Pelosi said in a statement to the New York Times. “Paul is grateful to the 911 operator, emergency responders, trauma care team, I.C.U. staff and the entire Z.S.F.G.H. medical staff for their excellent and compassionate lifesaving treatment he received after the violent assault in our home.”

The House Speaker went on to say her 82-year-old husband “remains under doctors’ care as he continues to progress on a long recovery process and convalescence. He is now home surrounded by his family who request privacy.”

Paul Pelosi was hospitalized last Friday after he was allegedly attacked by 42-year-old David Wayne DePape. Authorities say the suspect is a Canadian citizen who was in the United States illegally. According to CNN, DePape came to the country in 2008 through the California-Mexico border. He could face deportation after his criminal case is resolved.

UPDATED 10/28, 2:20 p.m. ETPaul Pelosi is reportedly undergoing brain surgery after he was assaulted by a home intruder.

Per NBC Bay Area, an assailant allegedly broke into the San Francisco property and repeatedly asked, “Where’s Nancy?” When officers arrived at the scene as part of a welfare check they discovered the suspect wielding a hammer, with which he attacked the 82-year-old, according to San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott.

The attacker has since been identified as 42-year-old David Depape, who’s charged with elder abuse among other felonies. Paul Pelosi was taken to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, and a source there said he’s undergoing brain surgery. Aerial footage from the home shows a broken glass door, although it has yet to be confirmed how Depape broke into the home.

Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul Pelosi has been hospitalized after he was assaulted by an intruder in their San Francisco home.

In a statement shared by Pelosi’s spokesman Drew Hammill on Friday, it was confirmed that the House Speaker’s husband was attacked in the morning by someone who forced their way inside. “Early this morning, an assailant broke into the Pelosi residence in San Francisco and violently assaulted Mr. Pelosi,” reads the statement. “The assailant is in custody and the motivation for the attack is under investigation.”

Paul, who is 82, is expected to make a full recovery. His wife was in Washington, D.C. at the time of the break-in, according to the Capitol Police statement on the matter. “The United States Capitol Police (USCP) is assisting the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the San Francisco Police with a joint investigation into a break-in at the California home of the Speaker of the House of Representatives,” the Capitol Police shared. “The law enforcement agencies will provide more information when it can be released.”

Earlier this year, Paul was arrested for a DUI and sentenced to five days in jail and three years of probation.

It’s unclear if the attack was politically motivated, according to authorities, but Nancy Pelosi has long been the target of criticism from Republicans across the country. In December, a North Carolina man was sentenced to 28 months behind bars for threatening to shoot her.

The couple have owned the San Francisco home since 1987, and were targeted by vandals after Congress passed a stimulus bill in January 2021. As reported by the New York Times, the home was spray-painted and a pig’s head was left on the sidewalk outside. The vandalism occurred just days ahead of the attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
