FRIENDS Star David Schwimmer Helps Police Solve Stabbing Investigation

Actor David Schwimmer is being credited with helping police solve a recent stabbing investigation in New York City, according to CNN.

On Monday, Schwimmer, best known for his role as Ross Geller in the long-running NBC series 'Friends,' shared home surveillance footage of a bloody fight that took place in the apartment building next to the actor's townhouse, according to Sgt. Tom Antonetti of the NYPD.

The dispute in the East Village apartment building involved three individuals arguing over the theft of a computer. The disagreement became physical and resulted in one of those involved suffering stab wounds to the face, police said. The victim was treated at Bellevue Hospital.

While the alleged stabber was taken into police custody, the third individual involved in the confrontation fled the scene. Robert Rainey of Newark, NJ was charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and robbery, Antonetti said.

Police only had the statements of those involved as evidence until Schwimmer came forward to offer the video footage. "I am sure it contributed in some form or fashion to the investigation," Antonetti told CNN of the tape. Neither the actor nor his representatives have commented on the incident.
