Scottish actor Alan Cumming had $300 (£190) stolen from his wallet after falling victim to thieves at a New York gym on Sunday (31Mar13).

The X2 star, who is currently staging his solo performance of MACBeth on Broadway, had placed his belongings in a locker at a community gym run by the Young Men's Christian Association (Ymca) - but he received a nasty shock when he returned to the changing room after his exercise session.

And the actor admits the incident was even more surprising because it took place in the posh Upper West Side neighbourhood of Manhattan.

Taking to his Twitter.com page after the incident, he wrote, "I just had my phone and 300 dollars stolen from my @ymca locker! The one on W 63rd st and Central Park West!! Wtf (what the f**k)?! hope you enjoy it a**hole".
