The suspect in the attack on Paul Pelosi at his home in San Francisco on Friday morning was identified by the police in the afternoon and would be David DePape, a 42-year-old man, according to the American media.

Three relatives of the alleged attacker told CNN that the man had been separated from his family for several years. His father-in-law, Gene DePape, confirmed that the suspect was originally from the Western Canadian province before he decided to leave for California due to a relationship.

"I really don't know what to think," the man's uncle, Mark DePape, said of the attack. "I hope it's a scam. I don't want to hear anything like that."

The suspect reportedly posted conspiracy theories about COVID-19 vaccines, the 2020 election and the January 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol on Facebook, according to CNN.

An investigation is underway with the American federal police - the FBI - and the Capitol police to find out the motivations of the alleged attacker, who would have rather sought to attack Ms. Pelosi, then absent from the home.
