The star of “Boardwalk Empire,” Steve Buscemi, was attacked by a passerby in broad daylight while walking the streets of New York City.

According to American media, “the attack came at the hands of an unknown man for unknown reasons, who viciously assaulted Buscemi.”

Buscemi, aged 66, was taken to Bellevue Hospital after sustaining injuries to his left eye and face, with the police confirming that the assailant fled the scene and investigations are ongoing to apprehend him.

Buscemi’s agent told the New York Post, “Steve Buscemi was assaulted in the center of Manhattan, becoming a new victim of random violence in the city.”

“He is doing well, and we appreciate everyone’s support despite the shock of the incident that occurred while he was walking the streets of New York.”

According to the police, the attack occurred on Wednesday, May 8, at 11:48 a.m., with a worker in the area witnessing part of the incident, stating: “I saw Buscemi stumble and fall backward while with a woman, then I saw him get up from the ground without seeing the assailant.”

The New York Police Department released photos of the alleged assailant obtained from street cameras, showing him with a dark complexion, white beard, wearing a baseball cap, and a blue shirt with black athletic pants.
