Benedict Cumberbatch and his family terrorized by a knife-wielding man!

A 35-year-old man clearly had a lot of anger towards actor Benedict Cumberbatch when he showed up at Cumberbatch’s London residence, while his wife and three children were inside!

The man, armed with a knife, reportedly shouted, “I know you moved here, I hope it burns!”, referring to Cumberbatch’s property.

According to TMZ, the man in crisis then attacked the plants outside the residence in addition to ripping out the wall-mounted Intercom.

He reportedly fled before police arrived, but DNA was taken from the scene, leading to his arrest.

The suspect known to police was slapped with a three-year restraining order, and offered no explanation as to why he targeted the actor (or his plants)!
