Frankie Grande is "safe and healing" after being mugged in New York City.

The 39-year-old dancer - who is the older brother of pop superstar Ariana Grande - is said to have been walking down the street in the Big Apple when he was attacked but the former 'Big Brother' star has now taken to social media to reassure his two million followers that he was "healing" and thanked them all for their support.

He wrote: "Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers. I am so thankful to be safe and healing. Keep shining bright and stay safe out there."

His comments come just hours after NYPD police explained that Frankie was attacked and robbed in the city but that the teengagers were caught when they were trying to make purchases with his credit card

NYPD said: "Frankie was walking down an NYC street last week ... when he got punched in the back of the head. A few hours after the attack. a 17-year-old and 13-year-old attempted to use one of Frankie's credit cards at a nearby smoke shop."

According to reports, the teenagers were found by police at the store and arrested at the scene on charges of assault, robbery, grand larceny, and other crimes."

The attack comes almost five months after Ariana's stalker broke into her house on her birthday.

The Thank U, Next' hitmaker wasn't at her pad in Montecito, California, in June, when Aharon Brown allegedly violated his restraining order by somehow gaining access to her property, triggering security alarms.

Police arrived at the house and arrested the man, and he was arraigned on charges of stalking, burglary, damaging power lines, violation of a court order, and obstruction.
