NCIS’ Pauley Perrette attacked outside her home

The actress posted this morning on Twitter that she “nearly died” when a homeless man jumped her and punched her repeatedly outside her house last night. "I was walking across my street to a new guest house I bought to meet my architect,” she recalled. "On my street, I was jumped by a VERY psychotic homeless man. He grabbed me 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.” Later this morning, Perrette recounted the incident to ET: "He told me he was going to kill me several times and I absolutely believed him. I prayed as hard as I've ever prayed for anything ever in my life, and I didn't do anything. I thought, anything I do would escalate the situation -- I couldn't overcome him, he was stronger than me." The man was later arrested and is custody on $100,000 in bail.
