Daniel Radcliffe was in the right place at the right time this weekend when he rushed to help a robbery victim in West London.
A man was targeted by two men, who stole his Louis Vuitton bag and left him with an injury on his face. Daniel was among the people to run to his aid.
“It was a bit of the surreal moment, I said ‘you’re Daniel Radcliffe’ and he replied ‘I am,’” former police officer David Videcette told Harper’s Bazaar UK, after he witnessed the incident. “He was a really nice bloke, a lot of stars wouldn’t have stopped to help. The victim was very, very shaken up.”
The police also released a statement, saying, “Police were called at approximately 6.10pm on Friday, July 14 to reports of a robbery in Hortensia Road. The victim – a man aged in his 50s – was walking in the road when two people riding a moped snatched his bag before riding off. The victim suffered a cut to the face during the incident. Officers from Kensington and Chelsea investigate. No arrests were made and enquiries continue.”
