“NCIS” star Pauley Perrette recovering after being violently attacked by homeless man

Sending good thoughts out to the wonderful Pauley Perrette, one of the best friends the LGBT community has ever had.

Pauley, 46, was attacked on the street outside her Hollywood home on Thursday by a homeless man who threatened to kill her.

She has played the brilliant but offbeat forensic scientist Abby Sciuto on the CBS drama NCIS since 2003 and is a staunch LGBT activist and ally who I saw just last weekend at the Kos Anfeles LGBT Center’s Vanguard Awards gala.

Pauley took to Twitter early Friday to share details of the horrific attack.

‘I almost died tonight,’ she wrote.

She was walking to a guest house she recently bought to meet with an architect when she was jumped by a man who she described as ‘very psychotic.’

Pauley wrote that he ‘repeatedly’ punched her in the nose and forehead and told her that he was going to kill her:
‘I was alone, terrified and trapped. There was an empty garage behind me and I knew if he got me in there I was dead.’

The man repeatedly told her that his name is William and only stopped the attack when she said to him: ‘William is a beautiful name. I have a little nephew named William.’

She collapsed on a sidewalk after he let her go and was able to text a neighbor who followed the man until police could arrest him.

The Los Angeles Police Department arrested a 45-year-old man on suspicion of felony battery. He is being held on $100,000 bail.

Such an awful thing to have happened to such a wonderful person.

2 Remarks

  1. Terrible! I’m glad Pauley is okay. Something needs to be done about the homeless problem. It’s unacceptable. I know all to well living in a city that has a serious homeless problem.

    Paulie, so glad you are OK. I remember you lost a friend to violence a few years ago we were all very sad for you and her family. Thank God you are okay because that would have been another tragic loss of a wonderful talented beautiful life.
