House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was spotted visiting her husband at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital on Sunday, two days after an intruder broke into their home and attacked him with a hammer.
Paul Pelosi, 82, suffered a skull fracture and serious injuries to his right arm and hands during the attack around 2:00 a.m. on Friday morning. He underwent surgery and is expected to fully recover.
A source tells Fox News that the suspect, David DePape, shouted, “Where is Nancy? Where is Nancy?”
As officers made entry into the home, DePape started swinging the hammer at Paul Pelosi, according to police.
