"My flesh may be stabbed but my spirit is unbreakable”

Actor Anwan Glover, who played “Slim Charles” in the hit HBO series The Wire, was stabbed in a Washington, D.C. nightclub early Sunday morning after a fight broke out.

The Washington Post reports Glover was treated for a laceration at the George Washington University Hospital after being stabbed in Cafe Asia, located in downtown Washington. Glover, who also appeared in the Oscar-winning film “12 Years A Slave,” is a 41-year-old Washington native. He’s the lead rapper in a local band called Backyard Band.

Glover posted a note Sunday on Instagram detailing his version of the incident, which he said occurred while he was supporting another local band.

“I am not a stranger to adversity and when shown hate, I’m going to spread love,” Glover wrote. “I am recovering and will be back soon. My flesh may be stabbed but my spirit is unbreakable.”
