    The charges remain sealed until Thurston's next court date on May 8.

    According to police sources, Kathleen Thurston, 47, approached Jackman outside his gym in the West Village Saturday, pulled out an electric razor and said to the actor "we should be married."

    Jackman told Thurston not to touch him and went inside the gym. Thurston tried to follow him inside, but was stopped by staff at the gym, sources said. Thurston then dropped the razor and ran off. She was arrested several blocks away.

    Jackman told police he had seen Thurston outside his daughter's school and again outside his home on Perry Street on Friday.

    Police had charged Thurston with stalking and other charges.

    Legal Aid lawyer Liz Beal told the newspaper she's trying to figure out whether Thurston is mentally fit for trial and declined to comment further.
