Actor Anwan Glover feels fortunate following an alleged stabbing he suffered early Sunday morning at a nightclub in Washington D.C. Glover, who is known for his role as gang member Slim Charles in the HBO series “The Wire,” was immediately treated at George Washington University following the assault. The 41-year-old actor explained the incident on Monday.

At the time of the police report, there wasn’t much known about the attack or even why it happened, except that Glover was hit by someone he didn’t know and then attacked from behind by another individual. The incident was part of three unrelated reports of violence that took place in local clubs throughout the D.C. area within a time frame of an hour and a half. Glover addressed the incident on his Instagram account. He said, “As many of you are aware, I was involved in an incident last night. While supporting another band, at their show, I was involved in an altercation with some unknown people. While defending myself, I was stabbed.”

Glover went on to add that despite being stabbed, he is still in high spirits. He continued, “I was hospitalized and have been released. I am not a stranger to adversity and when shown hate, I’m going to spread love. I am recovering and will be back soon. My flesh may be stabbed but my spirit is unbreakable. I want to thank all of my fans, followers and friends for their inquiries, we’ll wishes, prayers and love. I love you all back and I’m always going to love my city.”

Since his stint on the hit HBO drama, Glover has appeared in the Oscar-winning film “12 Years a Slave” and has had a stint on the show “Elementary,” as well as another HBO drama, “Treme.” Glover is also a musician himself, which explains why he was at Café Asia supporting other artists.
