Authorities say actor Anwan Glover, known for playing a gang member in the TV series The Wire, has been treated for a laceration after he reported being stabbed and kicked at a nightclub in the nation’s capital, according to multiple reports.
In a police report obtained by The Washington Post, Glover told investigators he was at Cafe Asia early Sunday when an unknown person punched him and another person hit him on the head. Glover told police he was then kicked repeatedly and felt sharp pain in his side.
The actor confirmed the incident Sunday evening on Instagram.
“… I was involved in an altercation with some unknown people. While defending myself, I was stabbed. I was hospitalized and have been released. I am not a stranger to adversity and when shown hate, I’m going to spread love. I am recovering and will be [back] soon. My flesh may be stabbed but my spirit is unbreakable,” Glover says.
Authorities say Glover was treated for a laceration to the torso at George Washington University Hospital. His condition wasn’t immediately known.
Washington, D.C., CBS affiliate WUSA reports that Glover had been shot several times in the past.
The 41-year-old actor, who lives in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, most recently appeared in the Oscar-winning movie 12 Years a Slave.
