In a somber statement released by his publicist on Sunday, the reality of the incident was not downplayed. “Steve Buscemi was assaulted in Mid-Town Manhattan,” the statement read, underscoring the disturbing reality of random acts of violence that can transform an ordinary city day into a memory of menace. The publicist however was quick to assure the actor’s fans, adding, “He is ok and appreciates everyone’s well wishes.”

The news of the assault first caught wind through a report by the New York Post. A somewhat cryptic statement from the New York Police Department on Wednesday regarding an assault, left the identity of the victim unmentioned. It was later confirmed by Buscemi’s representative on Sunday that the unidentifiable victim discussed in the police statement was, regrettably, the actor himself.

The authorities assured that their investigations are ongoing, even though no arrests have been made yet in relation to the assault on Buscemi.

In an unexpected echo of the recent incident, Buscemi’s “Boardwalk Empire” co-star Michael Stuhlbarg had his own experience of street violence. He found himself in the terrifying position of being struck in the back of the neck with a rock while walking in Manhattan’s Central Park on March 31. Showing remarkable resilience, Stuhlbarg gave chase to his assailant, leading to the perpetrator’s subsequent capture outside the park.
