According to the LAPD, the suspect produced a replica handgun which contained a knife blade and pointed it at the 48-year-old comedian.
Moments later, the suspect, who has now been identified as 23-year-old Isaiah Lee, was pounced on by security, with video showing his arm twisted and apparently snapped as he was booed.
He also appeared to have a bloody eye and nose.
