"I was hospitalized and have been released. I am not a stranger to adversity and when shown hate, I'm going to spread love. I am recovering and will be back soon," he wrote. "My flesh may be stabbed but my spirit is unbreakable. I want to thank all of my fans, followers and friends for their inquiries, we'll wishes, prayers and love. I love you all back and I'm always going to love my city."

Since his stint on "The Wire" from 2004 to 2008, Glover has appeared in various roles, including the Oscar-winning picture "12 Years a Slave" and the show "Elementary."

According to a police report obtained by The Washington Post, Glover said he was at Cafe Asia when the incident occurred and that it started when he was punched and hit in the back of the head. He added that he was then kicked on the floor and felt a pain in his right side -- that was the stabbing.
