The Wire star Anwan Glover was stabbed inside a Washington, D.C., nightclub early Sunday morning, his rep confirms to E! News.

Glover was in a very crowded area of Café Asia when he heard someone scream, "He has a knife."

The actor then felt a sharp pain and went down. According to Glover's rep, the crime appears to be a total mystery.

"He has no idea who did it, or why," he told E! News. Police are actively investigating the case.

Reports say the actor suffered a severe laceration and a bruise during the altercation. He was quickly taken to George Washington Hospital where he received treatment. His injuries were not life-threatening.

"He is in stable condition," his rep tells E! News. "Doctors expect a full and fast recovery."

Glover played gang member Slim Charles in the popular HBO series, The Wire. He also starred in the Oscar-winning movie, 12 Years a Slave.
