Liberty Poole and Kaz Kamwi were left "shaken up" after being threatened at knifepoint.
The 'Love Island' stars are currently in Los Angeles and were 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 defense 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.”
A spokesperson for both stars declined to comment.
Earlier this year, Liberty hit out at people who judge her on her looks after facing criticism following her debut performance on 'Dancing On Ice'.
She said: "I think because I've come from 'Love Island' I have comments on my appearance and what I look like quite a lot.
“I'd rather just stay away from that and help people to get to know me as a person, what I have to offer as a person and my personality.
“That's way much more important than what anyone looks like. I can't speak for what other people are thinking when they look at the show, but all I know is I'm having the time of my life and I'm not going to let people's opinions effect that.
“If I've been born with these boobs, it's not my fault. You know what I mean?”
