Dev Patel breaks up knife fight in Australia

Oscar-nominated actor Dev Patel broke up a knife fight in Adelaide, Australia.

According to 7News, Patel was captured on video speaking to police after witnessing a stabbing on Gouger Street just after 8.45pm on Monday. Emergency services had been called to the area after reports of a fight between a man and a woman.

Patel’s representatives confirmed that the actor helped stop a knife fight.

“We can confirm that last night, in Adelaide, Dev Patel and his friends witnessed a violent altercation that was already in progress outside of a convenience store,” the actor’s representative told Variety. “Dev acted on his natural instinct to try and de-escalate the situation and break up the fight. The group was thankfully successful in doing so and they remained on site to ensure that the police and eventually the ambulance arrived.”

His representatives also highlighted the systemic issue marginalized members of society are facing.

“There are no heroes in this situation and sadly this specific incident highlights a larger systemic issue of marginalized members of society not being treated with the dignity and respect they deserve,” the statement continued.

The identities of the people involved in the fight remain unclear. Variety and PEOPLE Magazine reached out to the local Adelaide police and the South Australia Police respectively for additional comment but did not hear back.
