What a good neighbor David Schwimmer is. The "Friends" star was able to help New York Police Department officers after a stabbing took place outside an apartment building next to his townhouse in East Village.

Cops were called after a fight broke out early Monday morning (May 27) between three men, one of which is a transgender prostitute. In the end, a 26-year-old john was stabbed, according to the New York Post. The prostitute ran away but police arrested the third man, 21-year-old Robert Rainey, on charges of assault, criminal possession of a weapon and robbery.

During their investigation, police noticed Schwimmer's property had a security camera installed. He invited the officers to view the footage and take the tape to use as possible evidence in court.

One of Schwimmer's neighbors is happy is around to help, a definite change from when he purchased the townhouse in 2010 and massively renovated it. 

"Four years ago, I would say David Schwimmer was the least popular guy on the block with the construction and all," Jayson Fillermutter says. "But he has turned out to be a decent neighbor, and I am glad to hear he helped the cops with that stabbing."
