San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins added several additional charges against the accused attacker beyond attempted murder – including residential burglary, assault with a deadly weapon and elder abuse.
The accused, David DePape, allegedly broke into the Pelosi household in San Francisco seeking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. A 911 dispatcher later contacted the authorities and sent them to the home after interpreting Paul Pelosi’s “coded” words through an open line. During the incident, Pelosi was struck with a hammer.
Jenkins took office earlier this year after she quit working for progressive former San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin and backed a successful recall effort against him.
