The knockout game is spreading, and Rose McGowan was a witness to an assault on Thursday, Jan. 2. The actress was in Venice Beach the day after New Year's and saw a man get attacked in front of her. She began to tweet what she saw.

The Charmed actress said the man was harmed in the attack, and she was staying around to help him. But he luckily did have a friend that also stuck around to protect him.

McGowan's fans began asking her numerous questions about the attacker, and what McGowan did to help.

Others told her to take photos of the attacker. She said by that point it was too late.

McGowan also retweeted a fan who pointed out that the knockout game, while sometimes called a "fight," is actually an assault.

TMZ reports that there is no word on the identities of either the victim or attacker.
