“An intruder broke into the Pelosi home in San Francisco early this morning and assaulted Mr. Pelosi severely. The attacker is in jail, and the reason behind the incident is being looked at, according to a statement from Pelosi’s office.
Mr. Pelosi was rushed to the hospital, where he is receiving first-rate treatment and is anticipated to recover completely. At the time, the Speaker was not in San Francisco, according to the statement.

The 2600 block of Broadway was the scene of a house invasion, according to San Francisco police. A collaborative investigation into the house invasion assault is being carried out by the Capitol Police, the FBI, and the San Francisco police.
Both Pelosi’s home and that of former Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, were vandalized in January of last year, only a few days before the attack on the Capitol on January 6. There were words like “$2K,” “Cancel rent!” and “We want everything” scrawled on Pelosi’s garage door. This occurred a few days after a resolution asking Congress to increase coronavirus stimulus checks to $2,000 was rejected.
