The food-delivery agency Deliveroo thanked Benedict Cumberbatch on Saturday after a newspaper reported that the Sherlock star had fought off muggers who have been attacking one in all its cyclists.
Uber driver Manuel Dias advised the Sun newspaper that he was driving Cumberbatch and his spouse Sophie Hunter alongside London’s Marylebone High Street once they noticed a bike owner being hit with a bottle.
He stated Cumberbatch jumped out of the automotive and grabbed one of many attackers.
“I had hold of one lad and Benedict another,” Dias was quoted as saying. “He seemed to know exactly what he was doing. He was very brave.”
“Here was Sherlock Holmes combating off 4 attackers simply not far away from Baker Street,” he added.
The fictional detective’s dwelling tackle in London is across the nook from the scene of the assault.
Cumberbatch’s spokeswoman declined to remark.
The newspaper didn’t say when the incident occurred. Police stated a supply bike owner was assaulted on the street in November.
On Saturday, Deliveroo praised Cumberbatch “for his heroic actions.”
“On behalf of everyone at Deliveroo: Thank you so much,” it stated.
