Bradley Cooper was robbed at knife point in NYC

It was back in 2019 and Bradley Cooper was in a subway station waiting off to himself, away from people.

“It was pretty insane;” he said.   “I realized I had gotten way, way too comfortable in the city. My guard was down… I was all the way at the end of the subway.”

He added: ‘Innately, I would just go all the way down to the end. I felt somebody coming up. I thought, Oh they want to take a photo or something.”

“I used to walk around New York City all the time with these [headphones] on – this was pre-pandemic – I was on the subway [at] 11:45 to pick Lea downtown at Russian school and I got held up at knifepoint,” he revealed.

‘As I turned, I’m up against the post like it’s the French Connection or some s**t, and I turned. I looked down and I see a knife.’

The A Star Is Born actor said the knife was almost three inches long, and even took time to think that the weapon ‘had some history’ to it.

‘I have my headphones on the whole time. I can’t hear anything. I’m just listening to music. So it’s scored, the whole thing was scored,’ he said while laughing.

Bradley then revealed how he instinctively began to run away from the attacker.

He explained: ‘I just started booking, just started running. I jumped over the turnstile, hid around the white, tiled entrance to the subway [and] took my phone out. He jumped over, running away. I took a photo of him. Then I chased him up the stairs. He started running up 7th Avenue. I took two more photographs of him.’

‘I ran down two police officers in an SUV, showed them the photograph and I’m, like, talking to them, and the guy kept saying – it was so interesting – he’s like, “Are you stabbed?” I was like, “No, no.” He was like, “Check to see if you’re stabbed.”

‘What happens is people get stabbed and they’re in shock. I looked to see if he was right. And then I got back on the subway and picked up my daughter.’

A real harrowing experience, although I have to say I don’t think those cops are going to do anything with your pictures of your runaway mugger.  lol
