David Schwimmer helps police investigating a violent incident involving his neighbour
The Friends star comes to the rescue of his New York neighbour
Tuesday 27 May 2014
David Schwimmer has assisted police in the arrest of a man who allegedly tried to rob and stab his New York neighbour on Monday morning (25 May).
Robert Rainey was charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and robbery, after he allegedly broke into a man’s apartment in an attempt to steal a laptop.
When Rainey entered, he allegedly discovered that the man was busy with a transgendered prostitute. The prostitute reportedly used pepper spray on the neighbour before running off and a fight ensued outside the man’s door.
The neighbour tried to defend himself with a knife but the assailant allegedly grabbed it from him and cut the man across the face.
The alleged assault was captured by Schwimmer’s security cameras, who allowed police to view the footage. The film may now be used in court.
Schwimmer – who is most famous for playing Ross in Friends – has featured in animation film Madagascar and is soon to appear on television in Irreversible, in which he plays a young writer. The sitcom is due to air later this year.
