LOC Actor Charlie Sheen, attacked by his neighbor in his home in Malibu

American actor Charlie Sheen was attacked at his luxurious home in Malibu, California, police said Friday, and the suspect was arrested and charged with assault and robbery.

In a statement, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said it received a call about an "assault/disturbance" at the Two and a Half Men star's home.

"Once they contacted the parties involved, agents identified Charlie Sheen as an assault victim," he reported.

The suspect identified as Electra Schrock was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon causing potential serious harm or injury and residential burglary, according to the sheriff's office.

Entertainment portal TMZ said Schrock, 47, is one of Sheen's neighbors, and that she "forced her way into the house and attacked him when he opened the door."

"We were informed that he ripped Charlie's shirt and attempted to strangle him," the report stated, adding that Sheen was checked by paramedics but was not taken to a hospital.

TMZ said this was not the first confrontation between the neighbors, and that in a previous incident Sheen's vehicle was sprayed with a sticky liquid.

Sheen, 58, is a Hollywood star known for his bad boy lifestyle, which has seen him involved in episodes of substance abuse, violence and relationships with porn actresses.

He has acted in films such as "Platoon," "Wall Street" and "Young Guns."

His small screen career includes starring in "Spin City" and starring in "Two and a Half Men," a series loosely based on his reputation as an inveterate party animal.
