In New York, a man has been charged with randomly assaulting actor Steve Buscemi

A man who was sought after for his involvement in the unprovoked assault on actor Steve Buscemi in New York City has been apprehended on a charge of assault, according to the authorities.

On May 8, a stranger approached the esteemed 66-year-old actor, known for his roles in “Boardwalk Empire” and “Fargo,” as he strolled through midtown Manhattan. Without warning, the assailant delivered a forceful punch to his face, causing bruising, swelling, and bleeding to his left eye. Thankfully, he was promptly taken to a hospital for treatment, where it was confirmed that he was otherwise unharmed, according to his publicist.

On Friday afternoon, police arrested a 50-year-old homeless man in the same precinct where Buscemi was attacked. Authorities had previously identified him as the suspect and had been searching for him. The man has been charged with second-degree assault.

It is unclear at the moment whether the man has legal representation available to address the accusations. A message was left at the local public defenders’ office.

Buscemi’s publicist did not respond to a message right away. Previously, they mentioned that the actor had become “another victim of a random act of violence in the city” but reassured that he was doing fine.

In March, a shocking incident occurred involving Michael Stuhlbarg, Buscemi’s co-star from “Boardwalk Empire.” While taking a stroll through Manhattan’s Central Park, Stuhlbarg unexpectedly had a rock thrown at the back of his neck. Despite this unexpected attack, Stuhlbarg bravely chased down his assailant, who was eventually apprehended just outside the park.
