“Goonies” alumni star Corey Feldman is shaken up after an attack by a man who jumped into his car and apparently stabbed him multiple times with a syringe-like instrument. According to his bodyguard, test results from blood and urine samples revealed no diseases or hard drug use present from the puncture wound on the actor’s abdomen. The 46-year-old Goonies hero reportedly believes the attack on him perpetrated by three Hispanic men was intended as a message against his recent moves to open the eyes of the world to alleged pedophiles operating in Hollywood.
Feldman’s attorney, Perry Wander, said the actor is more on edge than he already was. In the Tuesday incident in Los Angeles, the three men allegedly followed the “Stand By Me” actor and his bodyguard to an intersection. There they pulled the car over, opened its door and stabbed Feldman without seeking other items typically demanded in such an attack such as a wallet, jewelry or the car itself. The actor is said to believe there absolutely is a conspiracy against him for speaking up. Wander said that at least one of the actor’s wounds appeared to be a defensive one, although what exact instrument was used in the attack has yet to be determined in the ongoing investigation.
A strong supporter of child victim rights, Feldman lends his presence and relates his experience when possible to advocate for extended time for child victims to sue offenders. Feldman recently appeared in Albany to support a bill that would give abuse victims more time to sue offenders than the current one limiting it to age 23 in that state. If passed, then previously unaddressed claims would have an additional one-year window to be heard in court under the Child Victims Act.
