Corey Feldman is reportedly being tested against infections after claiming he was stabbed.

The 46-year-old actor took to Twitter to post photos of himself from hospital on Tuesday night (27.03.18) after claiming he had been attacked, and a representative for the star has now revealed they believe the alleged incident was carried out using a syringe, and Corey is now reportedly undergoing tests at hospital to make sure the wound hasn't become infected.

His rep said in a statement, which was first reported by The Blast: ''Corey got jabbed with a long, sharp object last night after a business meeting. He was in the car with his security team at the time. Initially, he was very shaken up and scared. He thinks he was stabbed with a syringe of some sort and there is concern that it may be infected.''

The unnamed rep states that Corey is being ''tested for HIV'' and ''any other diseases'' which are commonly transmitted via an infected needle.

The 'Goonies' actor revealed the news on social media when he posted pictures of himself in his hospital bed, and claimed the alleged attack motivated by his decision to repeatedly speak out about his alleged sexual abuse.

He wrote on Twitter: ''IM IN THE HOSPITAL! I WAS ATTACKED 2NITE! A MAN OPENED MY CAR DOOR & STABBED ME W SOMETHING! PLEASE SAY PRAYERS 4 US! [praying emojis] THANK GOD IT WAS ONLY MYSELF & MY SECURITY IN THE CAR, WHEN 3 MEN APPROACHED! WHILE SECURITY WAS DISTRACTED, W A GUY A CAR PULLED UP & ATTACKED! I'M OK! (sic)''

The Los Angeles Police Department has opened an investigation into the incident, with Corey alleging that his attackers were seeking revenge for his insistence on speaking out about child sex abuse in Hollywood.

He explained on the micro-blogging website: ''@LAPD R CURRENTLY INVESTIGATING THE CASE AS AN ATTEMPTED HOMICIDE! I HAVE HAD MOUNTING THREATS ON ALL SM PLATFORMS BY THIS VILE ''WOLFPACK'' & THIS IM SURE IS A RESULT OF THOSE NEGATIVE ACTIONS! I HAVE REASON 2 BELIEVE ITS ALL CONNECTED! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! HOW SICK R THESE PPL?!? (sic)''
