EAST VILLAGE, Manhattan — Actress Spencer Grammer says she was trying to calm an agitated man when he slashed her in the arm and stabbed her friend in the back Friday night outside a Manhattan restaurant. Grammer, 36, told US Weekly that she and her friend “did what anyone else would do in the same situation” and were “attempting to prevent the altercation from escalating” when they were attacked.
The NYPD confirmed injuries to a 36-year-old woman and 31-year-old man. The woman, who two law enforcement sources identified as Grammer, was cut in the right arm, while the man was stabbed in the lower back, police said.
After the struggle, the suspect fled the restaurant on foot.
The pair were taken to nearby Bellevue Hospital where they were treated for their injuries, the department said.
The police department had made no arrests as of Saturday afternoon.
