Former Beatle George Harrison was hospitalized after being stabbed in the chest Thursday by an intruder who broke into his Oxfordshire mansion, according to his spokesman, Baker. "From what we know, George was stabbed in the chest several times and [his wife] Olivia was hit over the head," Baker said.
Harrison was hospitalized at Royal Berkshire Hospital in nearby Reading in stable condition, according to a hospital spokeswoman who asked not to be identified. His wife was not admitted to the hospital, but was at Harrison's side, the spokeswoman said.
Thames Valley police said they were questioning a man in connection with the attack at the palatial Harrison estate, called Friar Park. Press Association, the British news agency, said Harrison and his wife grappled with the intruder, believed to be a 33-year-old Liverpool man, and that they apparently were able to detain him until police arrived. The man was treated at a nearby hospital for undisclosed injuries, but was then discharged into police custody, authorities said.
Baker said he was not aware of the man being previously known to the family.
