Actor Christian Slater has escaped a knife attack outside the London theatre where he has starred in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.
Slater was not hurt in the attack
Slater was leaving the Gielgud Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue on Friday evening when the attacker struck.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said the actor was unharmed but a knife had "penetrated the clothing" of a 44-year-old, possibly Slater's minder.
A knife was recovered from the scene, but no arrests have been made.
Slater's role in the West End show, made famous by Hollywood actor Jack Nicholson in the 1975 film, came to an end on Saturday.
His co-stars included Frances Barber and Mackenzie Crook, renowned for his role as Gareth Keenan in TV comedy The Office.
The actor hit the headlines in August when his UK stage debut at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe was delayed after he contracted chickenpox.
His big-screen credits include Interview With The Vampire, Broken Arrow and True Romance.
