UPDATE 7/26 10:30am EST. Spencer provided a statement to HollywoodLife about what happened on Friday. “My friend and I did what anyone else would do in the same situation. Several others, predominantly women, were also attempting to prevent the altercation from escalating. I sustained a laceration on my arm, and my friend was stabbed in the back, but thankfully he suffered no serious internal injuries. We expect to recover quickly. We want to thank the first responders and the staff at Bellevue Hospital, who provided us with excellent care. They fought an incredible battle this year. It was very moving for us to have the opportunity to thank them in person. “
Spencer Grammer, 36, was slashed at a New York City restaurant when she and a friend tried to diffuse a situation that happened. It took place around 11:30pm EST at The Black Ant on Second Ave in the Lower East Side. An angry man started fighting with customers after he wasn’t able to get a table due to it almost being closing time. A “full on brawl” then ensued, according to a witness, where Spencer and her companion, Jan Phillip Mueller, were among those who joined the fray. The man in question then reportedly slashed Grammer in the forearm and Mueller in the back where they were treated with injuries and released.
“On Friday, July 24, 2020, at approximately 2310 hours in front of 60 2 Avenue (9 Precinct), an unknown male stuck a 36-year-old female in the right arm with an unknown object causing a laceration and swelling,” Detective Sophia Mason, DCPI Spokesperson, told HollywoodLife. “A 31-year-old male was also struck in the lower back causing a laceration. The complainants were removed to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition. The suspect fled the location on foot. He is described as a black male in his 30s, approximately 5’08” and short black hair. He was last seen wearing a white t-shirt, black shorts and black sandals. This remains an ongoing investigation.”
