The report by Emmy Award-winning reporter Miguel Almaguer claimed the 82-year-old backed up a few feet from the officers and down the hall towards David DePape, 42, who had previously stormed into the house armed with a hammer. As Pelosi reportedly backed away from the responding officers and walked toward DePape, they saw him bludgeon Pelosi with the hammer, according to the report. The NBC News report also said it was unclear what Pelosi’s mental state was when he walked away from police and responding officers were apparently unaware that it was the home of Nancy Pelosi, who has security and was in Washington, DC at the time of the attack. The report, which differs from court documents filed earlier this week, was released Friday morning. By early afternoon, the report had been withdrawn.

DePape was wearing ties with him when he broke into the home in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, shouting “Where is Nancy” — the same phrase used by Capitol rioters on Jan. 6. According to court documents filed earlier this week, Pelosi told DePape that his wife was not there and wouldn’t be there for several days, so DePape said he would wait. Pelosi was then able to enter the bathroom where his phone was charging and was able to call 911. DePape later told investigators he wanted to hold Nancy Pelosi captive and talk to her. He said that if the speaker was telling “the truth”, he would let her go, and if she was “lying”, he would “break her kneecaps”. “She would then have to be taken to Congress, which would show other members of Congress that actions had consequences,” he explained. DePape also later said he broke into the house through a glass door using the knocker. Paul Pelosi, who was the only one at home when DePape broke in, called police who arrived two minutes later to wrestle with a hammer, according to a Justice Department news release. When Officers Kolby Wilmes and Kyle Cagney answered the residence and rang the doorbell, DePape allegedly told Pelosi not to open the door, but Pelosi did so anyway using his left hand. Pelosi and DePape stood in the dimly lit lobby and faced the officers as Pelosi calmly greeted them, according to the police report. When one of the officers asked the men what was going on, DePape said, “It’s okay” and pulled his hands to his body. When an officer turned on his flashlight, DePape could be seen holding the lower handle of the hammer with one hand and Pelosi’s right arm with the other. Pelosi’s right hand was also on the hammer handle. When an officer ordered the men to “drop the hammer,” DePape raised the hammer and said, “uh, no” as he tried to pull it away from Pelosi who exclaimed “hey, hey! DePape then took control of it and punched Pelosi in the head, which knocked Pelosi unconscious, according to San Francisco FBI Special Agent Stephanie Minor wrote in a request for a federal criminal complaint and arrest warrant. .
