Harry Potter was the heroic character played by Daniel Radcliffe, but a recent incident shows that the actor has his own heroic qualities. Radcliffe, 27, was included in a group of people that assisted a man who was allegedly slashed across the face by two robbers on a moped in London.
According to reports, one of the suspects stepped off the moped to attack a man with “an expensive looking Louis Vuitton bag.” The victim fought against the thief before he was cut, but the criminals triumphed and sped off with their plunder, leaving the victim “very, very shaken up,” a witness reports.
Radcliffe reportedly consoled the victim, who was a 50-year-old tourist vacationing in the UK.
“He was a really nice bloke,” said David Videcette, a former police officer who also assisted the victim. “A lot of stars wouldn’t have stopped to help.”
Police are still investigating the incident.
