David Schwimmer helps police solve stabbing

By Tribute News on May 27, 2014 | 1 Comment

Former Friends star David Schwimmer helped police officers investigating a dramatic robbery gone wrong that took place next door to his $4 million home in New York's East Village on Monday morning by allowing them to review his security camera footage. The cameras caught the end of an altercation between David's 26-year-old male neighbor; a transgender prostitute the man had hired and robber Robert Rainey, 21, who allegedly broke into the man's home. According to the New York Daily News, the 26-year-old man was having sex with the prostitute in his bathroom - which adjoins David's apartment - when he heard an intruder in his house.

The man chased the thief with a box cutter, but Rainey managed to wrestle it away from him and slashed the man across the face. An onlooker said: ''It started inside and spilled out into the street. There was blood everywhere.'' Another eyewitness told the the New York Post he heard the victim shout, ''He sliced me up!'' In a bizarre twist, the prostitute may have been in cahoots with the robber and pepper-sprayed her client before running away. The thief was detained and charged with robbery, assault and criminal possession of stolen property.

    He shared video tape from his security camera. He hardly was out combing the streets for clues and putting the pieces together. Not even sure why this is a story, if it was anyone else sharing the video, this wouldn’t even make the news.
