Actor Corey Feldman Says He Was Stabbed at a San Fernando Valley Intersection

The 1980s film star says the attack is connected to threats he received on social media

Actor Corey Feldman was hospitalized after what the "Stand by Me" and "Goonies" star described as an attack by three men at a San Fernando Valley intersection.

Los Angeles police said Feldman was in a car with a passenger near Reseda and Ventura boulevards in Tarzana when someone opened a door and "jabbed" him in the stomach. Details regarding the weapon were not immediately available.

His injuries were not considered life-threatening. Feldman drove himself to the hospital and was treated and released, according to police. Feldman's passenger was not injured.

Feldman, 46, tweeted his account of the altercation and pictures of himself in a hospital bed. He said he believes the attack is connected to "mounting threats" received on social media platforms.

A detailed description of the attacker was not immediately available. No arrests were reported early Wednesday.

Police are investigating whether road rage was behind the confrontation, Officer Lizeth Lomeli told The Associated Press. 

Feldman is best known for his roles in 1980s films, including "The Lost Boys," "Gremlins," "The Goonies" and the coming-of-age "Stand by Me." He went on to appear in several movies with his good friend Corey Haim, who died in 2010.

His latest film, "Corbin Nash," is about a rogue police detective and due for release next month.
