Boardwalk Empire actor Steve Buscemi punched while walking in New York City

Actor Steve Buscemi, star of Fargo and Boardwalk Empire, was attacked Wednesday morning in Manhattan and taken to a nearby hospital with bruising, swelling and bleeding in his left eye.

“Steve Buscemi was attacked in Mid-Town Manhattan, another victim of a random act of violence in the city,” according to a statement released Sunday by his publicist. “He is doing well and appreciates everyone’s well wishes.”

The attack was first reported by the New York Post.

The New York Police Department released an anonymous statement Wednesday about the assault. Buscemi’s representative confirmed Sunday that the unidentified victim of the assault in the police statement was the actor.

Police said there have been no arrests and the investigation is continuing.

Michael Stuhlbarg, Buscemi’s co-star in “Boardwalk Empire,” was hit in the back of the neck with a rock while walking in Manhattan’s Central Park on March 31. Stuhlbarg pursued his attacker, who was arrested outside the park.
