Pauley Perrette, star of “NCIS,” escaped death at the hands of a deranged homeless man in front of her Hollywood Hills home — using skills she learned from the hit show to nab the suspect!
“While Pauley plays forensic scientist Abby Sciuto on the crime drama, she knew enough from the show to draw a sketch of the man that led to his arrest,” a source told The National ENQUIRER.
Pauley, 46, was badly shaken after the Nov. 12 incident and tweeted: “I almost died … tonight was awful, life changing and I’m only grateful to be alive.”
She added the man was “telling me he was going to kill me” before she was able to escape.
Police later nabbed the suspect, identified as David Merck, 45, on felony battery charges.
Added the source: “Like in the show, the cops fortunately got their man.”
