Knife-wielding man breaks into Benedict Cumberbatch’s home, threatens actor and family
Benedict Cumberbatch and his family reportedly feared for their lives as a knife-wielding man recently broke into the Marvel star’s North London home and threatened them.
According to the Daily Mail, 35-year-old Jack Bissell, who previously worked as a chef at the Beaumont Hotel in Mayfair, kicked his way through the front gate of the “Doctor Strange” star’s multi-million dollar property, allegedly shouting, “I know you’ve moved here, I hope it burns down.”
Cumberbatch, 46, his wife, Sophia Hunter, 45, and their three children were reportedly in the home at the time of the break-in and could hear the intruder screaming outside.
Bissell also reportedly took one of the family’s plants and threw it against the garden wall, and at one point ripped the intercom off the building after spitting on it.
