Actor Corey Feldman was hospitalized early today after an incident in which a number of men reportedly approached his car and, according to the actor, he was stabbed.
“Corey says he was stopped at a traffic light Tuesday night in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley — with a security guard — when 3 men approached the car,” TMZ reports. “He says while his security was distracted by the 3 guys, a car pulled up and another attacker jumped out, stabbed him and fled the scene.”
The TMZ report adds: “Law enforcement now tells us, Corey told police he believed he was being followed. At some point, Corey’s bodyguard, who was a passenger in his car, shined a flashlight toward the other car. At the next light, one of the guys in the car that was following Corey got out and confronted the bodyguard. Another guy went to the driver’s side and Corey says the guy stabbed him with some sort of syringe or other sharp object and then the car took off. Cops now say there is some sort of mark on Corey’s abdomen.”
TMZ notes that the police consider it a road rage incident and the call went out as an assault with a deadly weapon.
Feldman said in a tweet early this morning: “I have had mounting threats on all [social media] platforms by this vile “Wolfpack” & this I’m sure is a result of those negive actions! I have reason 2 believe it’s all connected! Enough is enough! How sick R these ppl?!?”
TMZ adds: “Corey told the police the attacker appeared to be following him, and whatever the person allegedly stabbed him with was ‘long and sharp.’ We’re told he feared it was a syringe, and went to the hospital to make sure he hadn’t been injected with something.”
