The husband of Speaker of House Nancy Pelosi, Paul Pelosi, is in the hospital after being “violently assaulted” by an assailant who broke into their home overnight.

“Early this morning, an assailant broke into the Pelosi residence in San Francisco and violently assaulted Mr. Pelosi,” the Speaker’s spokesperson, Drew Hammill, said in a statement.

“The assailant is in custody and the motivation for the attack is under investigation. Mr. Pelosi was taken to the hospital, where he is receiving excellent medical care and is expected to make a full recovery. The Speaker was not in San Francisco at the time.”

“The Speaker and her family are grateful to the first responders and medical professionals involved, and request privacy at this time,” Hammill added.
