‘Goonies’ Actor Corey Feldman Is ‘OK’ After Alleged Stabbing

Child actor Corey Feldman says that he was stabbed on Tuesday night in Los Angeles and is in recovery.

The 46 year-old actor, who has been an outspoken advocate for children after reportedly enduring sexual abuse as a child, tweeted that he was attacked in a parking lot when a man distracted his security guards and stabbed him. Feldman posted pictures of himself in a hospital bed with his wife by his bedside, and added that the LAPD are investigating the attack as a homicide. According to CBS Los Angeles, police responded to a call late on Tuesday night and found that Feldman had experienced a minor stab wound, but have not released any other information.

In a tweet, Feldman drew a connection between his work exposing pedophilia and the attack. The Los Angeles Police Department told CBS that it cannot confirm the connection at this time.
