If you follow Love Island's Kaz Kamwi and Liberty Poole on Instagram, you will know that the pair recently jetted off to Los Angeles for a luxurious holiday. However, the duo were left terrified after reportedly being held at knife point "out of the blue" while on their way to a party.

A source told The Sun, "Liberty and Kaz had been just heading to a party and got out of their car in the wrong part of the neighbourhood. Out of the blue, this woman appeared with a knife and threatened them."

They continued, "Liberty and Kaz were obviously shocked and terrified — especially because guns are legal in the US. But fortunately for them, two men who had been walking past came to their rescue and called the police."

The source detailed that the pair were left shaken by the incident and are surprised it happened to them. "They’re grateful that the two men were in the right place at the right time, to help them," the insider added. "They’re now determined to put the scary incident behind them for the rest of their once-in-a-lifetime trip."

This weekend the best friends spoke out about the incident on Instagram stories and thanked their followers for their support. Kaz said, "We just wanted to jump on really quickly and say thank you for all the messages we have received. We're leaving LA now, our cab's downstairs to go to the airport."

Liberty interjected, "Obviously it was a scary incident that happened but we didn't want it to affect the rest of our holiday so we've just been continuing on as normal and living our best lives. Obviously, it's horrible that, that happened but we're all OK and that is the main thing, that we're safe." Kaz added, "We just wanted to say thank you."

Kaz Kamwi first jetted out to LA last month to attend week one of Coachella festival, alongside Love Island co-stars Millie Grace Court and Lucinda Strafford. Liberty Poole joined Kaz shortly after and they documented their luxury trip full of shopping, dinners and clubbing across Instagram.
