Christian Slater had savely escaped from a knife attack in London's West End
American actor, Christian Slater (35) had encountered a knife attack after his stage performance of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest outside London's West End theater Friday night. Media reported that Slater's bodyguard who took the brunt of the attack didn't hurt because the knife only penetrated his cloth and that both could then escape without any serious injury.
A Scotland Yard spokeswoman said that police, who were called to Shaftesbury Avenue in the heart of London's theaterland at 11 p.m. Friday evening, had recoverd a knife in the scene which later on will be one evidence for them to investigate the case.
