Liberty Poole and Kaz Kamwi have reassured fans they are doing "OK" after being threatened at knifepoint.
The 'Love Island' stars were in Los Angeles and left stunned when a 40-year-old woman came at them with a weapon as they got out of their car on Thursday (28.04.22), but fortunately two male passers-by jumped to their defence and apprehended the stranger.
A source told The Sun on Sunday's Bizarre column: “Liberty and Kaz had been just heading to a party and got out of their car in the wrong part of the neighbourhood.
“Out of the blue, this woman appeared with a knife and threatened them.
“Liberty and Kaz were obviously shocked and terrified — especially because guns are legal in the US.
“But fortunately for them, two men who had been walking past came to their rescue and called the police.
“The girls have been left shaken up by the incident and are just surprised that it happened to them.
“But they’re grateful that the two men were in the right place at the right time, to help them.”
The pair flew to California to attend the Coachella music festival and are determined to put the scary incident behind them to enjoy the rest of their vacation.
The insider added: “They’re now determined to put the scary incident behind them for the rest of their once-in-a-lifetime trip.”
And breaking their silence, Kaz said on her Instagram Story on Sunday (02.05.22): "We wanted to jump on really quickly and say thank you to all the messages we have received."
Liberty added: "Obviously, it was a scary incident that happened Thursday, but we didn’t want it to affect the rest of our holiday so we’ve just been continuing on as normal and living our best lives.
"And obviously, it’s horrible that that happened, but we’re OK and that’s the main thing that we’re safe."
The pair have since returned home.
