Attack on Nancy Pelosi’s husband – level 3
Paul Pelosi is the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi; an intruder assaulted him in his own home in San Francisco, California, USA.
The attacker was 42-year-old David DePape. He was active in online right-wing conspiracy groups, and he often posted conspiracy-related content on Facebook.
DePape reportedly entered the house when he broke a rear window of the property, and he demanded to see Nancy, who was in Washington DC at the time. He viciously attacked Paul Pelosi with a hammer, which caused a skull fracture. Pelosi underwent a surgery for his injuries, and he’s currently recovering.
The investigation is still ongoing; however, police have claimed that the attack was premeditated. They have charged DePape with attempted homicide.
Difficult words: viciously (in an aggressive or angry way), premeditate (to plan something beforehand), homicide (a murder).
