Actress Spencer Grammer Slashed Outside Manhattan Restaurant


Actress Spencer Grammer says she was trying to calm an agitated man when he slashed her in the arm and stabbed her friend in the back Friday outside a New York City restaurant. 36-year-old Grammer told “US Weekly” that she and her friend “did what anyone else would do in the same situation” and were “attempting to prevent the altercation from escalating” when they were attacked.

Grammer and her friend were eating at an outside table at The Black Ant in Manhattan’s East Village neighborhood around 11:30 p.m. Friday when the man ambled up and demanded to be served as the restaurant was closing down. Grammer and her friend were hurt as they “attempted to break up a dispute between the unidentified male and other patrons at the location,” police said.

The man ran away after wounding Grammer in the right arm and her friend in the lower back with an unknown sharp object, police said. No arrests have been made. Grammer, who provides the voice of Summer on “Rick and Morty” and previously starred on the ABC Family series “Greek,” is the daughter of “Frasier” star Kelsey Grammer and actress Doreen Alderman.
