Steve Buscemi’s alleged assailant is identified by the NYPD

New York City Police have identified the alleged assailant who punched actor Steve Buscemi in the face during a random attack last week as Clifton Williams, 50.

The NYPD is currently investigating the attack and searching for Williams. As part of their efforts, they have released surveillance photos on Tuesday.

Last week, the NYPD provided a description of Williams as a male with a dark complexion. He was reportedly seen wearing a dark baseball cap, a blue T-shirt, black pants, and white sneakers. Additionally, he was seen carrying a book bag.

At 11:50 a.m. on May 8, Steve Buscemi, 66, was walking along a sidewalk on Third Ave. near E. 27th Street in Kips Bay when the attack took place.

Buscemi was rushed to Bellevue Hospital by emergency medical personnel to receive immediate treatment for his left eye. The eye was severely bruised, swollen, and bleeding.

Steve Buscemi, a native of Brooklyn, is not only an accomplished actor but also a former firefighter. In a display of incredible bravery and dedication, he joined his former FDNY unit in assisting with the aftermath of the devastating 9/11 terrorist attack in 2001.

Steve Buscemi has been a part of numerous films and television productions throughout his career. One of his notable roles includes the lead role in the critically acclaimed “Boardwalk Empire” series on HBO, which aired for a total of five seasons.

While strolling through Central Park on March 31, “Boardwalk Empire” co-star Michael Stuhlbarg found himself unexpectedly targeted by a man wielding a rock.
