Elizabeth Hurley has revealed her 21-year-old nephew was “repeatedly stabbed” in a “brutal attack” in London.
Model Miles Hurley and another 21-year-old man were left with non-life-threatening injuries when they were assaulted by a group of men in Nine Elms, south London just before 9pm on Thursday.
The actress and model wrote on Twitter: “My 21 year old nephew was repeatedly stabbed in a brutal attack in London on Thursday night.
“The police & hospital are being fantastic. Thank you for all your messages. It is an appalling time for him & our family. The police will be appealing for witnesses.”
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “Police were called at 20.52 on Thursday, 8 March to Ascalon Street, SW8 following reports of a stabbing.
