It looks like this multi-talented Hollywood star can play a hero both on and off screen. British actor Dev Patel has broken up a fight in Australia in which a man was stabbed in the chest, his representatives have confirmed. Here’s what you need to know.
The actor, who has starred in films including Slumdog Millionaire, Lion and The Green Knight, witnessed the fight between a man and a woman in Adelaide on Monday night. Patel’s rep said the star “acted on his natural instincts” in an attempt to defuse tensions between the feuding couple. “We can confirm that last night in Adelaide, Dev Patel and his friends witnessed a violent altercation that was already underway outside a supermarket,” the actor’s rep said in a statement to Variety.

“Dev acted on his natural instinct to try to de-escalate the situation and end the fight. Luckily the group was successful and stayed on site to ensure the police and eventually the ambulance arrived.”
Patel’s team went on to say that there were “no heroes in this situation,” adding that the incident highlighted a broader problem where marginalized people are not being treated with the “dignity and respect they deserve.”
“The hope is that the same level of media attention this story is getting (just because Dev was involved as a famous person) can be a catalyst for lawmakers to be compassionate when it comes to finding long-term solutions to.” helping not only those affected, but the community at large,” the statement concluded.
Further details on the alleged attacker’s motivation are still unclear.
South Australia Police confirmed that after the incident, a 32-year-old Glengowrie man was treated at the scene by ambulances and taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital. His injuries are not considered life-threatening. A 34-year-old woman from Park Holme has been charged with aggravated assault and denied bail, police added.
