Curiosities and celebrities: The 66-year-old film star was attacked on Wednesday morning on a street in Manhattan. He was sent to a nearby hospital with swelling and bleeding from his left eye.

– Steve Buscemi is yet another victim of random violence in the city. He is ok and thanks for all the wishes for a good recovery, says a statement from a spokesperson for the actor.

The case was first featured by the New York Post. The police in the American metropolis issued a statement on the case on Wednesday, but without naming anyone. On Sunday, a representative for Buscemi confirmed that he was the unidentified victim in the police report.

As of Sunday, New York police had not yet arrested anyone in the case, which is under investigation.

On March 31, Buscemi’s colleague from the TV series “Boardwalk Empire”, Michael Stuhlbarg, was hit in the neck with a rock while walking through Central Park in Manhattan. Stuhlbarg himself ran after the attacker, who was then apprehended by police outside the park.
