Actor Corey Feldman hospitalised after stabbing attack in car
Actor Corey Feldman was rushed to hospital Los Angeles, California, in the early hours of Wednesday morning after an alleged stabbing while he was in his car. The 46-year-old tweeted pictures of himself from a hospital bed claiming that while his security guards were distracted a man opened his car door and stabbed him.
The tweet reads: "I'm in the hospital! I was attacked 2nite! A man opened my car door & stabbed me w something! Please say prayers 4 us!
"Thank God it was only myself and my security in the car, when 3 men approached!
"While security was distracted, w a guy a car pulled up & attacked. I'm OK!"
Shortly afterwards, the actor – who rose to fame with films The Lost Boys and Stand By Me – claimed that the LAPD are investigating the alleged attack.
He tweeted: "LAPD r currently investigating the case as an attempted homicide! I have had mounting threats on all SM platforms by this vile 'wolfpack' and this I'm sure is a result of those negative actions!"
In a statement, the LAPD told Mandy News: "On 03/27/18 around 10:45 p.m., a radio call was generated of an Assault with a Deadly Weapon. Actor Corey Feldman was driving in his vehicle with a passenger and had stopped at a tri-light signal at Reseda and Ventura Boulevard.
"An unknown suspect opened his driver side door and jabbed at Feldman's abdomen with an unknown object. Feldman self transported to a local hospital where he is in stable condition.There is no laceration to Feldman's Abdomen and any injuries are unknown at this time.No suspect description/unknown weapon used."
Feldman recently appeared on US television talk shows to reveal details about alleged abuse he suffered in Hollywood as a minor.
He also set up a crowdfunding campaign to finance the making of a documentary feature film that will allegedly “help us uncover the TRUTH through Coreys story (in a film) of his life.”
The actor has raised $273, 151 of a $1,000,000 target for the film.
This comes months after Feldman alleged that "somebody tried to kill" him.
In a recent appearance on Megyn Kelly Today, he said “Somebody tried to kill me the other day. I've been arrested. This is no joke. I'm fearing for my life.”
He added, "I had two trucks come speeding at me at the same time. I'm not saying they were trying to kill Corey Feldman. But they were trying to kill a group of people walking across the street."Tags:
