Rick and Morty actress Spencer Grammer revealed that she was slashed in the arm with a knife by an intoxicated man in New York City. Grammer and her friend were eating dinner at The Black Ant in Manhattan’s East Village on Friday night when the attack occurred. Although neither party suffered serious internal injuries, Grammer’s friend was stabbed in the back.

Grammer explained that the man caused a stir when he demanded to be served, even though the restaurant was ready to close. She told Us Weekly, “My friend and I did what anyone else would do in the same situation. Several others, predominantly women, were also attempting to prevent the altercation from escalating.”

She went on, “I sustained a laceration on my arm, and my friend was stabbed in the back, but thankfully he suffered no serious internal injuries. We expect to recover quickly. We want to thank the first responders and the staff at Bellevue Hospital, who provided us with excellent care. They fought an incredible battle this year. It was very moving for us to have the opportunity to thank them in person.”

DCPI Detective Sophia Mason told Us that the man ran away after the incident, “On Friday, July 24, 2020, at approximately 2310 hours in front of 60 2 Avenue (9 Precinct), an unknown male stuck a 36-year-old female in the right arm with an unknown object causing a laceration and swelling. A 31-year-old male was also struck in the lower back causing a laceration. The complainants were removed to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition. The suspect fled the location on foot. He is described as a male black in his 30s, approximately 5’08” and short black hair. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, black shorts and black sandals. This remains an ongoing investigation.”

Grammer, who is the daughter of Kelsey Grammer from the television show Frasier, is known as the voice of the character Summer on Rick and Morty.
