“Yesterday morning a violent man broke into our family home, demanded to confront me and brutally attacked my husband Paul. Our children, grandchildren and I are heartbroken and traumatized by the attack which has endangered our lives. We are grateful for the quick response from law enforcement and emergency services, and for the life-saving medical care he is receiving,” Nancy Pelosi said in the “Dear Colleague” letter to all members of Congress on Saturday.

San Francisco Police Chief William Scott said David DePape, 42, now faces charges of attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, burglary and other crimes in connection with the attack, which occurred after 2 a.m. Friday.
