WASHINGTON (AFP) - One of the stars of the cult TV series The Wire said on Monday he was recovering after being stabbed in the torso at a Washington nightclub.

Anwan Glover, who played ruthless gang enforcer Slim Charles in the HBO crime drama, was rushed to hospital after the knifing early Sunday.

“While supporting another band, at their show, I was involved in an altercation with some unknown people,” said the 41-year-old, who also performs in a local go-go band.

“While defending myself, I was stabbed,” he told fans and friends via social media, adding: “I am recovering and will be back soon... I am not a stranger to adversity and when shown hate, I’m going to spread love.”
