Elizabeth Hurley's nephew was stabbed multiple times earlier this week in London.

21-year-old Miles Hurley was attacked on a street in Nine Elms, South West London on Thursday. Metropolitan Police confirmed to E! News that an ambulance arrived at the scene and discovered two 21-year-old men with stab wounds. They said they got in a minor car crash with another vehicle, then got into an argument with its occupants, and then drove off and parked. The other vehicle followed them and its occupants, a group of men, got out and assaulted the victims before driving off.

"My 21 year old nephew was repeatedly stabbed in a brutal attack in London on Thursday night," Elizabeth tweeted Saturday morning. "The police & hospital are being fantastic. Thank you for all your messages. It is an appalling time for him & our family. The police will be appealing for witnesses."

Another male believed to be the same age was also found suffering from stab wounds. Police say they were both taken to a hospital where their conditions are described as not life-threatening or life-changing.

Police told E! News that they are believed to have been attacked by a group of males who got out of a vehicle and assaulted them before fleeing the scene.

Elizabeth is close with her younger nephew who has already found huge success in the modeling industry.

At just 21, Miles has modeled for designers like Roberto Cavalli, Salvatore Ferragamo, Calvin Klein and Dolce & Gabbana.

On his Instagram page, Miles shares several photos of Elizabeth including memories at fashion events, vacations and even a throwback with Hugh Grant.

"I'm really close to my aunt and she's very supportive of everything I do" he told The Telegraph in 2013. "The best advice she has given me is just to enjoy myself, work hard and be nice to everybody."

The investigation into the stabbing continues. We're wishing Miles a speedy recovery.
