'The Wire' Star Anwan Glover -- Yeah I Got Stabbed ... D.C's Not all Roses


"The Wire" star Anwan Glover is acting like getting stabbed is no big deal ... because everyone knows Washington D.C. is not all roses and rose gardens.

We got  Anwan in Maryland Monday ... and he made light of the attack at Cafe Asia Sunday AM.  Glover -- who played Slim Charles on the show -- was blindsided when 2 men started beating him and then he was stabbed.

Glover says D.C. is a deceptive place ... it seems like such a nice place, with The White House and all ... but it's a lot tougher.
