The 21-year-old remains hospitalized.

Elizabeth Hurley's nephew was stabbed multiple times during an attack in London, the actress said Friday on Twitter. 

The incident occurred Thursday in Wandsworth, a London borough.

"My 21-year-old nephew was repeatedly stabbed in a brutal attack in London on Thursday night," Hurley wrote. "The police & hospital are being fantastic. Thank you for all your messages. It is an appalling time for him & our family. The police will be appealing for witnesses." 

According to the BBC, a group of men got out of a vehicle and assaulted Hurley's nephew — Miles Hurley, who is also a model — and his friend before fleeing. The motive is unclear. 

The friend has been discharged from the hospital, but Hurley's nephew remains, according to the BBC.
