“The Wire” and 12 years a Slave actor Anwan Glover speaks about his attack while at a DC nightclub. The actor explains to WJZ that he was stabbed right in the side of his chest at the club Café Asia. Glover explains that he does not know who stabbed him and that he was punched and when he fell to the ground he was kicked multiple times before someone stabbed him. “There was a bunch of people pushing, trying to move out of the way, and I felt that,” Glover said. “They were like, “Are you okay?” I said, “I don’t know” and then I look and there was blood. It was shooting out.”
Café Asia is currently shut down until Friday because a letter from the DC Liquor Board the “establishment presents imminent danger to the health and safety of the public.” The nightclub has been visited by law enforcement nearly two dozen times in the last three years.
“The Wire” is a show that was filmed right here in Baltimore!
