Soap fans may remember for his stints on CBS’ “” and NBC’s “,” but these days the former soap star is battling attacks with a hairbrush, reports TMZ.

According to the website, the actor has filed a restraining order against 47-year-old Christopher Veech, who lives with Alfieri’s neighbor, following claims that he was attacked with a hairbrush last month and has previously been harassed by Veech for more than a year.¬†Alfieri states that the right side of his face still hurts following the hairbrush attack and his right eye twitches as a result.

The restraining order has been granted by a judge, but Veech is only required to stay 3 yards (or 9 feet for those mathematically challenged like me) away from the actor since they live in the same building.
