Suspect in Steve Buscemi Attack Apprehended at NYC Homeless Shelter

Steve Buscemi’s alleged attacker has been apprehended in New York City. According to reports, the suspect was arrested after law enforcement officers responded to a call at a local homeless shelter. The details surrounding the incident remain unclear at this time.

According to law enforcement sources, TMZ has learned that Clifton Williams, the individual believed to be responsible for assaulting the actor by approaching him and delivering a punch in broad daylight, was apprehended on Friday. The arrest took place after the police responded to a harassment call at a homeless shelter in Manhattan.

According to authorities, Clifton began filing a police report for lost property and presented his ID to the officers. It was during this process that they recognized his name and subsequently arrested him. The initial report was first covered by the NY Post.

As we previously mentioned, Steve Buscemi was strolling through the Kips Bay neighborhood on the east side of Manhattan when he was unexpectedly attacked by an individual. Buscemi recalls that the person approached him and struck him. Although there is surveillance footage of Buscemi walking in the area prior to the incident, there is no visual evidence of the actual assault taking place.

Buscemi’s fans were recently concerned after photos of bruising around his eye surfaced. However, he took to social media on Sunday to reassure everyone that he is doing well and on the road to recovery.


New York has experienced a series of random acts of violence in recent months. This includes a few incidents involving celebrities in the city.
