Actress Spencer Grammer, daughter of TV star Kelsey Grammer, said an agitated man cut her arm and stabbed her friend in the back outside a New York restaurant on Friday night.

Grammer, 36, told Fox News via her rep that she and her friend “did what anybody else would do in the same situation” and “were trying to keep the altercation from escalating”, trying to calm the man down when he attacked them.

The two were eating at an outdoor table in the East Village around 11:30 p.m. when the man arrived, demanding to be served by the restaurant, which was closing.

“I suffered a tear in my arm and my friend was stabbed in the back, but luckily he didn’t suffer any serious internal injuries,” the actress conceded. “We expect to recover quickly. ”
