Comic-Con went a little insane today when a Harry Potter-loving attendee reportedly stabbed another man in the face with a pen at the convention center's massive Hall H. That alleged attack went down following today's Resident Evil: Afterlife panel.

According to a report from Entertainment Weekly on the incident, San Diego police arrested the alleged attacker after he was subdued by attendees. Another report on the matter from MTV says that the victim in the attack was attempting to hold a seat for a friend.

George Roush, a reporter for Latino Review, captured video of the alleged attacker being hauled off by police, the source of the snap above.
