Benedict Cumberbatch: Hero in Real-Life Mugging
Actor Benedict Cumberbatch, famous as Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Strange, is being called a real-life hero after chasing away four muggers in London.
Reuters reports the actor was in an Uber when he witnessed four men attacking a cyclist working for Deliveroo, a food-delivery business.
Cumberbatch left the safety of the car and ran over, chasing the men off.
"Benedict's a superhero," his Uber driver, Manuel Dias, told The Sun, calling him "courageous, brave, and selfless."
An added twist to the happy ending — the attempted mugging happened on Marylebone High Street, close to the fictional home of Sherlock Holmes!
