Attack on Nancy Pelosi’s husband – level 2

03-10-2022 15:00

A man attacked Paul Pelosi who is the husband of politician Nancy Pelosi. He attacked him in his home in San Francisco, California, USA.

Police identified the attacker as 42-year-old David DePape. He broke the back window of the house to get inside. He asked where Nancy Pelosi was, but she wasn’t there because she was in Washington DC.

DePape attacked her husband with a hammer, which caused a skull fracture. Pelosi underwent surgery, and he was recovering from it.

DePape often posted conspiracy content on social media, and police say that he planned the attack carefully. They charged DePape with attempted homicide.

Difficult words: skull fracture (a break in bones in the head), conspiracy (a secret plan by a group of people to do something illegal or dangerous), homicide (a murder).
