The attack occurred in the 6000 block of Cahuenga Terrace about 5 p.m., not far from where transients are known to camp under the 101 Freeway, said Sgt. Bob Ward of the LAPD’s Hollywood division. The 46-year-old actress, best known as forensic scientist Abby Sciuto on CBS’ “NCIS,” recapped the assault on Twitter about 1:30 a.m. Friday. Police said the account is accurate. It reads in part: “I was very hesitant about tweeting this. Tonight was an awful night. I was walking across my street to a new guest house I bought to meet my architect on my street, I was jumped by a VERY psychotic homeless man,” she wrote. “He grabbed me so forcefully, pinned my arm, punched me in the nose, forehead repeatedly telling me he was going to kill me. Then he showed me how he was going to kill me.” I’ve seen this guy’s rap sheet; it’s a long rap sheet,” Ward said. “He’s self-medicating. Probably didn’t even know who she is .... He’s not going anywhere.” Merck was booked on suspicion of felony battery and is being held on $100,000 bail. Perrette, a well-known advocate for civil rights and the homeless, finished her message on a personal note. "I am shaken and traumatized. My house, my beloved Hollywood. My beloved homeless people that I spend my life protecting. My life changed tonight. My ... I don't know. We need full mental health care. We need housing and help for the homeless. We need to support our cops. We need to not walk alone. I need to heal. I almost died tonight."
