Footage of the attack on Paul Pelosi, husband of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was released to the public Friday.
Footage shows a man identified by authorities as suspect David DePape breaking into the home. Body camera footage from police responding to the location shows a confrontation between the attacker and Pelosi.
That footage shows DePape rip a hammer from the grasp of 82-year-old Paul Pelosi and lunge toward him. The attacker then holds the tool over his head. A blow to Pelosi occurs out of view and the officers rush into the house and jump on DePape.
Pelosi, apparently unconscious, can be seen lying face down on the floor in his pajama top and underwear.
