Actor Charlie Sheen attacked in Malibu home and suspect arrested

Officers were called to the Two and a Half Men star’s home for a “battery/disturbance”.

ACTOR CHARLIE SHEEN has been attacked in his luxury Malibu home, according to police, with the suspect arrested and charged with assault and burglary.

Officers were called to the Two and a Half Men star’s home for a “battery/disturbance”, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

“Upon contacting the parties involved, deputies identified Charlie Sheen as a victim of assault,” the statement said.

Suspect Electra Schrock was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, force likely to create great bodily injury and residential burglary, the sheriff’s office said.

Entertainment outlet TMZ said Schrock, 47, is one of Sheen’s neighbours, who had “forced her way into his home and attacked him when he opened the door”.

“We’re told she ripped Charlie’s shirt and attempted to strangle him,” the title reported, adding that Sheen was seen by paramedics but not taken to a hospital.

TMZ said this was not the first confrontation between the neighbors, reporting that previous incidents had included a sticky liquid being squirted on Sheen’s car.

Sheen, 58, has appeared in films including Platoon, Wall Street (alongside his father Martin Sheen) and Young Guns.

His television career has included Spin City and Two and a Half Men, a series loosely based on his hard-partying reputation.
