LONDON– The food-delivery firm Deliveroo thanked Benedict Cumberbatch on Saturday after a paper reported that the “Sherlock” star had fought off assailants who were attacking among its cyclists.
Uber driver Manuel Dias informed the Sun paper that he was driving Cumberbatch and his partner Sophie Hunter along London’s Marylebone High Street when they saw a cyclist being struck with a bottle.
He stated Cumberbatch jumped from the automobile and got among the aggressors.
” I had hold of one lad and Benedict another,” Dias was priced estimate as saying. “He seemed to know precisely what he was doing. He was extremely brave.”
” Here was ‘Sherlock Holmes’ fighting off 4 opponents just round the corner from Baker Street,” he added.
The imaginary detective’s home address in London is around the corner from the scene of the attack.
Cumberbatch’s spokeswoman decreased to comment.
The newspaper didn’t say when the occurrence occurred. Police said a delivery bicyclist was attacked in the street in November.
On Saturday, Deliveroo applauded Cumberbatch “for his brave actions.”
” On behalf of everybody at Deliveroo: Thank you so much,” it stated.
