Daniel Radcliffe helps tourist 'slashed in the face' by armed moped robber

Daniel Radcliffe rushes to aid of tourist slashed in face by gang

Daniel Radcliffe came to the aid of a tourist who was slashed in the face during a robbery over a Louis Vuitton bag in London.

A former police officer watched the incident unfold and tried to prevent the attack.

One witness named David Videcette, who was formerly part of the Met's counter-terror unit, said that he noticed two men behaving suspiciously.

"He was a really nice bloke, a lot of stars wouldn't have stopped to help" Videcette told the news station.

The Evening Standard reports that a man in his 50s was targeted by two thugs who made off with his expensive Louis Vuitton bag after slashing his face with a knife.

David Videcette, a former police officer who witnessed the incident from his auto, told the Evening Standard, "They grappled with him on the pavement".

Soldiers uncovered two bullet casings in the area. "The forces encountered the suspect, who attempted to open fire at them". The gun used was an improvised Carlo-style submachine gun that was made to look like an M-16 assault rifle.

Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Daniel Radcliffe asking for comment. Videcette tried to follow them, but they got away by running red lights.

He told the Evening Standard: 'They grappled with him [the victim] on the pavement.

Videcette tried to chase down the offenders' scooter in his auto, but the thieves were jumping signals and he could not catch up.

David Videcette, a former police officer, told London's Evening Standard how he returned to the scene after shunting the thieves' moped with his auto to discover there was a famous face among the crowd. "It was a bit of a surreal moment", he said.

Apart from sustaining cuts to the face and being visibly shaken, the victim is said to be fine and thankful for the help. "The victim suffered a cut to the face during the incident", it read. There have been no arrests made and inquiries continue'.

Quizzed on whether he would say that "Hollywood has been - or is - racist", Radcliffe replied: "I mean, yes - I think it's pretty undeniable".
