- The woman who attacked actor Charlie Sheen has been identified as Electra Schrock, Sheen’s neighbor.
- Schrock was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon, force likely to create great bodily injury, and residential burglary.
- Sheen, who has been sober for nearly six years, told police that he believes Schrock had been harassing him prior to the attack.
The woman who allegedly attacked Hollywood actor Charlie Sheen has been identified. Electra Schrock, a 47-year-old neighbor of Sheen, made her initial court appearance on Friday following her arrest in Malibu, California.
According to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, Schrock was taken into custody after she reportedly “forced her way into his home and attacked him when he opened the door after hearing a knock,” as reported by TMZ. The incident occurred on Wednesday.
Schrock now faces serious charges, including assault with a deadly weapon, force likely to create great bodily injury, and residential burglary. The sheriff’s department, in their statement, identified Charlie Sheen as the victim of the assault.
The report further detailed the alleged attack, stating that Schrock ripped Sheen’s shirt and attempted to strangle him before retreating back to her own home. Despite the arrival of paramedics alongside law enforcement, Sheen did not require hospitalization.
Sheen, the 58-year-old star of “Two and a Half Men,” shared with police his belief that Schrock had previously thrown a sticky substance on his car. He also alleged that she had littered his doorstep with trash earlier in the week. After confronting her about these incidents, it seemed the matter had been put to rest.
In a recent interview with People, Sheen revealed that he has maintained sobriety for nearly six years and leads a “very consistent lifestyle now.” His focus, he said, is on being a single father and raising his 14-year-old twin boys, Max and Bob.
Sheen’s decision to become sober was prompted by a broken promise to one of his daughters, whom he shares with ex-wife Denise Richards. He recalled a morning when he had forgotten about an appointment he had promised to drive his daughter to, having already had a few drinks that day. A friend ended up driving them to the appointment.
“We got her there on time, but it broke my heart because she was in the backseat and I could just tell she was thinking, ‘Why isn’t dad driving?’ So I got home and sat with that for the rest of the day. And the next morning I just stopped,” he shared.
