"Police were called at 20:52hrs on Thursday, 8 March to Ascalon Street, SW8 following reports of a stabbing. Officers attended with the London Ambulance Service (LAS). A 21-year-old man was discovered with stab wounds. Another man, also believed to be aged 21, was also found suffering from stab wounds. They were both taken by LAS to a south London hospital where their conditions are described as not life-threatening or life-changing," the statement to the publication read.

The officials say the men are believed to have been "attacked by a group of males (no further details) who got out of a vehicle and assaulted them before fleeing the scene". The investigation is underway.

Hurley took to Twitter to confirm the news and rushed back to London to be by his side. The actor was in the US to promote her show.

"My 21-year-old nephew was repeatedly stabbed in a brutal attack in London on Thursday night. The police and hospital are being fantastic. Thank you for all your messages. It is an appalling time for him and our family. The police will be appealing for witnesses," she wrote.
