Anwan Glover, best known for his role as gang member Slim Charles in HBO’s The Wire, was attacked and stabbed at a Washington, D.C. nightclub on Sunday morning.

The actor and musician was treated for a laceration to his torso and was soon after released from George Washington University Hospital, according to WJLA.

It was a violent weekend in D.C., with this incident marking only one of three attacks that broke out within the same hour in northwest D.C.

Authorities do not believe all the incidents were related.

Two of the attacks occurred at Café Asia, while the third took place at Red Lounge.

Glover told investigators he was at Café Asia supporting a band when he was suddenly punched by one unknown person, and hit on the head by another person.

The 41-year-old said he was then kicked repeatedly before feeling a sharp pain in his side.

Glover took to social media Sunday evening to assure his fans that he was recovering.

“As many of you are aware, I was involved in an incident last night,” he posted on Instagram. “While supporting another band, at their show, I was involved in an altercation with some unknown people. While defending myself, I was stabbed. I was hospitalized and have been released. I am not a stranger to adversity and when shown hate, I’m going to spread love. I am recovering and will be back soon. My flesh may be stabbed, but my spirit is unbreakable.”

He went on to thank his “fans, followers and friends” for their “[well] wishes, prayers and love.”

He also announced that he lost his cellphone in the midst of the scuffle, and promised to replace it by Monday.

In addition to starring on The Wire, Glover was cast in the first season of HBO’s Treme, and he most recently appeared in the Oscar-winning film 12 Years A Slave.
