"Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe sprung into action to come to the aid of a tourist who was slashed in the face during a robbery in London last week.

According to the Evening Standard, the actor was among a group of individuals who tried the help the tourist after he was mugged for his Louis Vuitton bag.

Two thieves on a moped had targeted the tourist with witnesses saying he was slashed across the face with a knife in the attack on a side road off Chelsea's fashionable King's Road on Friday evening.

Ex-cop David Videcette told the Evening Standard he chased off the muggers then returned to the scene and was surprised to see Radcliffe tending to the tourist.

"It was a bit of the surreal moment, I said 'you're Daniel Radcliffe' and he replied 'I am,'" he said. "He was a really nice bloke."

In a statement to the Evening Standard, the Met Police said: "Police were called at approximately 6.10pm on Friday, July 14 to reports of a robbery in Hortensia Road.

"The victim - a man aged in his 50s -- was walking in the road when two people riding a moped snatched his bag before riding off. The victim suffered a cut to the face during the incident."

No arrests were made following the robbery.
