Daniel Radcliffe comes to the rescue of tourist who was ‘slashed in the face’

Daniel was walking the streets of London when it happened

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe was reportedly one of the first responders to an attack which left a tourist ‘slashed in the face’.

The terrible attack took place last week in London as two motorcyclists with knives mugged a tourist and stole his Louis Vuitton bag, leaving him with facial injuries.

The unidentified victim was attacked on the Kings Road in the Chelsea area of London, and Daniel was said to be one of the first people to attend to the victim.

A former police officer witnessed the incident and saw Daniel trying to help.

The former officer, David Videcette, told the Evening Standard: “It was a bit of the surreal moment, I said ‘you’re Daniel Radcliffe’ and he replied ‘I am’. He was a really nice bloke, a lot of stars wouldn’t have stopped to help.”

He also said: “The victim was very, very shaken up,” and although the attackers got away it is hoped they will be found and put to justice.

Videcette followed the criminals and tried to stop them from getting away by blocking their vehicle with his car, but unfortunately it didn’t work and the attackers went through a red traffic light and sped off.

Although a spokesperson for Daniel said he was indeed at the scene, they haven’t released any statements and Daniel hasn’t yet given a comment about his involvement.

Daniel is renowned for keeping his private life private and apart from his movie and theatre roles he stays away from the limelight.

So it must have been surreal for the people involved in this incident that they bumped into him out on the streets of London.

He was the good guy in this horrifying incident, but recently Geordie Shore star Chantelle Connelly was the bad guy (or girl) when she was found guilty of punching a woman during a night out in Newcastle.

Although the Geordie Shore star, 27, originally denied assaulting a woman during a heated row, leaving the victim with a broken wrist and needing stitches for a split lip, she was found guilty.

At the end of June Chantelle was found guilty of grievous bodily harm without intent after a trial at Newcastle Magistrates’ Court.
