Pauley Perrette, star of ‘NCIS,’ is happy to be alive after a ‘psychotic’ homeless man reportedly attacked her on Nov. 12. While she was walking in Hollywood, a deranged man allegedly assaulted Pauley, swearing that he was going to killer her!
We are very glad that Pauley Perrette, 46, is okay. The actress who plays the lovable Abby Sciuto on NCIS reportedly came so close to death at the hands of a murderous psychopath in Hollywood. Pauley’s quick thinking may have saved her life, but she is still very “traumatized” by this horrific attack.
Pauley revealed about her near fatal assault in the early morning hours of Nov. 13 by sharing a note to her Twitter, reports Us Weekly. Earlier that night, Pauley was walking across the street in Hollywood to “meet my architect,” when a “very psychotic” homeless man reportedly jumped her.
“He grabbed me so forcefully, pinned my arm, punched me in the nose [and] forehead,” Pauley wrote, “repeatedly telling me he was going to kill me. Then, he showed me how he was going to kill me.”
When the attacker revealed his name to be “William,” a terrified Pauley “prayed my heart out and said “William is a beautiful name. I have a little nephew named William.” Though the alleged psychotic homeless man struck Pauley again, he told her to “get the f*ck out of here.” Perhaps this show of kindness saved Pauley’s life?
What may even more shocking than the actual attack is the callous behavior of a passer-by. When Pauley got away from the attacker, she “collapsed on the sidewalk,” clearly in shock. While she lay there, “some guy” who was walking his dog just strolled passed her. He was reportedly on his phone and didn’t even stop to see if she was okay!
Thankfully, Pauley contacted her friends and they contacted the authorities. After Pauley provided a sketch of the reported attacker, the cops “got him,” and have charged him with a felony assault. Sadly, Pauley remains “shaken and traumatized” by this terrifying experience! While she expressed sympathy for her attacker, saying we need “full mental health care” and “housing and help for the homeless,” she also said that she needs time “to heal,” especially since she almost died.
Our thoughts go out to Pauley as she deals with the trauma of this horrific incident.
