After a terrifying home invasion incident by Jack Bissell, a former chef, Benedict Cumberbatch, and his family are thankfully unharmed.
Former Mayfair hotel chef Jack Bissell broke into the 46-year-old actor’s London house while he, his wife, Sophie Hunter, and their three boys were inside.
When Bissell allegedly entered Benedict’s home after kicking through the iron fence, he reportedly yelled, On May 10, the event was related in court; the specifics of the meeting were kept confidential.
In court, Bissell made no defense and confessed guilty. A three-year restraining order has been placed against him in addition to a £250 fine. It is unknown why he assaulted the Sherlock actor, although a few days prior when purchasing pita bread, he told a shopkeeper that he intended to set fire to the family’s house.
In the Wood Green Crown Court case, prosecutors claimed that Bissell allegedly stopped to buy two packets of pita bread before the incident.
At that time, Bissell informed the store owner that he wished to set fire to the movie star’s home. At the time, Cumberbatch and his wife, Sophie Hunter, were at home with their three kids.

According to reports, Bissell punched through an iron fence and hurled a plant against a wall after ripping it out of a garden. Then, brandishing his fish knife, he spits at an intercom.
In court earlier this month, Bissell admitted to damaging property by yanking up a plant, tossing it at a wall, spitting at an intercom, and disassembling it with a fish knife.
Bissell intended to break in and set Cumberbatch’s home on fire.
In 2015, he was again detained for violating public order while participating in a demonstration against military action in Syria.
Six years later, with the comment, “Bad choice of pants and very handsy police,” he shared a photo of himself being carried away by police while just wearing his pants. One to put on the mantle.
The north London home where the event occurred was occupied by the 46-year-old Benedict Cumberbatch, better known as Doctor Strange, his wife Sophie Hunter, 45, and their three young children.
The iron gate to the front yard was kicked open by Jack Bissell, who then said, “I know you’ve moved here; I hope it burns down,” a court was informed earlier this month.
The 34-year-old ripped a plant out of the yard and tossed it against the wall. Between 2017 and 2020, he served twice as chef de partie at a five-star hotel in West London. The court was told that he spat at the property’s intercom and assaulted it with the fish knife.
According to the reports, Bissell ran away from the incident but was apprehended after his DNA was discovered on the intercom. On May 10, at Wood Green Crown Court in north London, he admitted to causing criminal damage.
