Miles Hurley has done shoots with Dolce & Gabbana and has mentioned in the past how close he is with his aunt. After the story was leaked to the press Elizabeth Hurley has since come forward asking for help finding the attacker.
“My 21 year old nephew was repeatedly stabbed in a brutal attack in London on Thursday night. The police & hospital are being fantastic. Thank you for all your messages. It is an appalling time for him & our family. The police will be appealing for witnesses,” she wrote on Twitter.
Meanwhile the police have revealed that another 21-year-old man was found at the scene also suffering from knife wounds, although his identity has not yet been revealed. They released an official statement which read:
“Officers attended with the London Ambulance Service (LAS). A 21-year-old man was discovered with stab wounds to his back. Another man, also believed to be aged 21, was also found suffering from stab wounds. They were both taken by LAS to a south London hospital where their conditions are described as not life-threatening or life-changing.
“They are believed to have been attacked by a group of males who got out of a vehicle and assaulted them before fleeing the scene. A crime scene was put in place. Road closures were also in place but have since been lifted.
“There have been no arrests.”
At the time of the attack Elizabeth Hurley was in America touring as part of a promotion for her new show The Royals. She revealed that she flew back as soon as she knew what happened to be with her nephew as he recovers. She is now with Miles and his mother, Elizabeth’s sister, Kate Curran aged 54.
