A violent incident occurred at the residence of actor Charlie Sheen on Thursday night, according to law enforcement sources.
A woman, identified as Sheen’s neighbor, allegedly broke into his home and assaulted him with a knife. Sheen managed to fend off the attacker and call 911.
He was taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries. The suspect was arrested at the scene and faces charges of burglary, assault with a deadly weapon and trespassing.
The motive for the attack is still unknown, but sources say the woman may have a history of mental illness and a grudge against Sheen.
Sheen’s publicist released a statement saying that the actor is “shaken but grateful” for the swift response of the police and paramedics. He also thanked his fans for their support and asked for privacy during this difficult time.
