Gerarld McCullouch is in the news today because he successfully and bravely fended off an attack by a would-be mugger, as he was riding the subway in New York City. The actor was working on his laptop, uploading a video to YouTube when the mugger attempted to snatch it from him. McCullouch, a trained boxer who practices three or four times a week took on the assailant, delivering body shot to the chest. The mugger pulled a 10-inch knife in retaliation leading to a fierce confrontation.

I yelled at the top of my lungs, ‘Get the [bleep] away from me!’ That’s when the knife came down into my back. I don’t know whether he lost his grip or what, but the blade didn’t penetrate my leather jacket.

“We were in each other’s face. I think I punched him again as the doors closed and the train started leaving the station. I’m watching MTA workers on the platform looking in. I thought, ‘Great, now I’m alone in this car with him.’

Thanks to the intervention of the train conductor who pulled the actor into the next car and the several police officers who entered the car and handcuffed and arrested the would be assailant, the actor escaped unharmed. He said in an interview that he fought back because he had been in “the[boxing] ring about eight hours before. Also, I didn’t want to give up my computer after working on my video all that time.”

It was the actor’s second confrontation with a mugger; he was previously held up at gunpoint in 2001.

As a biography, Gerald McCullouch was born in Los Angeles, California, on March 30, 1967 so his age is 41. He began his career as an actor in New York City doing both film and theater, in both singing and nonsinging roles, notably as the title character in the musical ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ in a European tour.
