Disabled Silent Witness actress Liz Carr was stabbed in the head by an attacker “wielding two pairs of scissors” near a busy London train station.

The attacker lunged at the wheelchair-bound TV star and her carer as they crossed a road outside Euston station on Thursday, August 10.

Ms Carr, who plays scientist Clarissa Mullery in the popular TV show, is recovering from a slash wound following the horrific ordeal.

A friend told the Sun: “It was a terrifying experience for Liz.

“She was being pushed in her wheelchair when this young man armed with two pairs of scissors suddenly headed towards her.”

Ms Carr and her carer, who has not been named, were both sent to hospital following the ordeal, with the TV star believed to now be recovering at home.

Both screamed for help as the attacker approached them just after 8.20pm.

A man in his 20s was arrested at the scene on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and was subsequently detained under the mental health act.

The friend added: “Typically, Liz is putting a brave face on it — joking that it was like being attacked by Edward Scissorhands.

Ms Carr has the rare genetic condition arthrogryposis multiplex congenital and has been in a wheelchair since the age of 7.

A Met Police spokeswoman said: “Police were called at 8.21pm on Thursday, August 10, to Euston Road, near to  Euston station, to reports of man attacking two women with scissors.

“Officers and LAS attended the location. The two women were taken to hospital suffering minor cuts and subsequently discharged.

“One of the victims was in a wheelchair. She was with her carer who was the second victim.”
