Miles Hurley, 21-year-old nephew of actress Elizabeth Hurley, was rushed to hospital after reportedly being stabbed “multiple times” on a street in Nine Elms in West London on Thursday.
According to The Sun, London’s Metropolitan police didn’t reveal the names of the victims, but did confirm that police responded to a call about a stabbing on Ascalon Street in West London.
When police arrived on the scene, reports The Sun, they encountered an identified man with stab wounds to his back. Another man, believed to be the same age as the other victim, had also been stabbed.
Both were taken to a nearby hospital, “where their conditions are described as not life-threatening or life-changing,” according to police.
“They are believed to have been attacked by a group of males who got out of a vehicle and assaulted them before fleeing the scene,” added a police spokesperson.
“His family feared the worst,” a source told the newspaper. “Fortunately it seems the knife missed his vital organs.”
Hurley’s aunt, who had been in the U.S. promoting the upcoming season of her drama series “The Royals”, was spotted arriving at London’s Heathrow airport on Friday morning, presumably to be by her nephew’s side.
A rep for the actress hasn’t yet responded to a request for comment.
Miles Hurley, a successful model in the U.K., revealed in a 2013 interview with The Telegraph that he’s “really close to my aunt and she’s very supportive of everything I do. The best advice she has given me is just to enjoy myself, work hard and be nice to everybody.”
That same year, Hurley showed her support of Miles’ burgeoning modelling career via Twitter:
