This is definitely no laughing matter.
Shelley Malil, an Indian comedic actor best known for appearing in The 40-Year-Old Virgin, has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, mayhem and burglary after allegedly brutally stabbing an ex-girlfriend 20 times and then fleeing the scene.
The woman, who has not been identified, was listed in critical condition at Palomar Hospital Monday. Her current condition was not immediately known, though she is expected to survive the attack.
"Malil and the victim apparently had been in a dating relationship which recently ended," a statement released by authorities said.
