Know More

The suspect, David DePape, is currently facing multiple state and federal charges in connection with the Oct. 28 attack, including attempted kidnapping of a federal official.

Authorities alleged that DePape broke into the Pelosis' San Francisco residence looking for Nancy Pelosi before assaulting her 82-year-old husband. Paul Pelosi suffered a skull fracture and serious injuries to his right arm and hands, but was expected to make a full recovery. Nancy Pelosi was in Washington, D.C. at the time of the attack.

DePape has pleaded not guilty to all state charges. Immigration officials said that DePape, a Canadian citizen, was in the U.S. illegally and could face deportation.
