Anwan Glover, best known for his role in TV show “The Wire” was brutally attacked in a nightclub in Washington, D.C. The famous actor suffered a laceration on the right side of his torso after being punched, kicked and stabbed, according to a police report.
Right after the punch, Glover turned to confront his attacker and another person hit him in the back of the head, because of which the actor slipped and fell on the ground.
The attackers then kicked him multiple times. After the kicking, the actor felt a sharp pain in his right side after hearing someone saying “He has a knife!”
Anwan, who also appeared in Oscar-winning movie “12 Years a Slave” was treated at George Washington University Hospital for the laceration on his torso. He is in stable condition.
According to the actor’s representative, the attack is a complete mystery to him, he has no idea who did it or why.
Although he played a tough gang member Slim Charles on “The Wire”, the actor has always been against violence and vocal about that problem. He lost a brother to a shooting in 2007 and his son was wounded in a shooting at a party in 2011.
