Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe rushed to the aid of a man attacked by two men on mopeds in London.

The victim, a tourist, was walking down London’s fashionable King’s Road, when two men on a moped stole his bag and left him with a facial injury, reported the Evening Standard.

A former policeman tried to intervene and managed to scare off the robbers by ‘shunting’ his car against their moped. When he returned to the scene of the crime, he noticed Daniel Radcliffe consoling the victim.

“It was a bit of the surreal moment, I said ‘you’re Daniel Radcliffe’ and he replied ‘I am’,” the ex-counter terror unit officer said.

“He was a really nice bloke, a lot of stars wouldn’t have stopped to help,” he continued. “The victim was very, very shaken up.”

The Evening Standard reached out to Radcliffe’s spokespeople, who confirmed he was present at the incident, but refused to comment further.
