The former child actor who played Damien in The Omen has been sentenced for a road rage attack.
Harvey Spencer Stephens, now 46 is said to have got out of his Audi RS6 to punch two cyclists during the incident in Westerham, Kent, UK on August 21 last year.
The father–of-one previously admitted two counts of ABH and one of criminal damage after the assault.
A source said, ‘This was a road rage offence in which he brutally assaulted two middle-aged cyclists without provocation,’ according to The Sun.
‘They had been out on a Sunday bike ride when he lost his rag and attacked — punching them in the head and damaging one of the cyclists’ helmets, which was worth £120 (AU$195)’
‘Kent Police investigated the incident, arresting Stephens a week or so later.’
In court, prosecutor Kieran Brand described how Stephens started sounding his horn when two riders started riding side-by-side.
Stephens is said to have pulled over , held one of the cyclists down and punched him six or seven times, causing dental injuries and damaging his helmet.
Harvey sprang to fame playing the role of devil child Damien Thorn in the Oscar-winning cult horror film. He was just four years old when he was picked for the role.
Harvey is said to have got the part after he attacked director Richard Donner on command — even punching him in the testicles.
The former actor was yesterday sentenced to 12 months jail, suspended for two years, for the ABH charges. He was given two months, suspended for two years, for the criminal damage charge.
