Cape Town – Elizabeth Hurley appealed on Twitter for witnesses to come forward after her nephew Miles Hurley was brutally stabbed.
The Royals actress said the 21-year-old model was repeatedly stabbed.
“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.”
In an Instagram post she further revealed that he lost more than four pints of blood.
“A policeman was patrolling close by and administered first aid until the ambulance arrived. The deepest wound just missed severing his spine. By some miracle no vital organs were damaged. We are praying that these animals are caught before they maim, or even kill, someone else. These are sad days.”
According to The Guardian, a Metropolitan police spokesman confirmed that two males were stabbed.
Both victims were taken to hospital and their conditions were described as not life-threatening or life-changing.
The BBC further reports that one man has been discharged while the other believed to be Miles is still being treated.
No arrests have been made.
Miles is a fashion model and has appeared in various designer brand campaigns such as Dolce & Gabbana.
