    Actor Daniel Radcliffe has come to the aid of a man who was mugged by moped-riding attackers in London.

    Former police officer David Videcette told the Evening Standard newspaper that two moped riders attacked a man just off the upmarket King's Road in west London, slashing him across the face and making off with a Louis Vuitton bag.

    He said he saw 27-year-old Radcliffe consoling the victim after the attack.

    A spokeswoman for Radcliffe confirmed Tuesday that the "Harry Potter" star had been present but gave no other details, calling it a police matter.
