Hollywood star Steve Buscemi is okay after he was punched in the face by a man on a New York City street, his publicist said on Sunday.

The 66-year-old actor was assaulted on Wednesday morning in Manhattan and taken to a nearby hospital with bruising, swelling, and bleeding to his left eye.

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

The New York Police Department put out a statement on the assault on Wednesday. 

Buscemi’s representative confirmed Sunday that the unidentified assault victim in the police statement was the Boardwalk Empire star. The police said there were no arrests and the investigation was continuing.

Buscemi’s Boardwalk Empire co-star Michael Stuhlbarg was hit in the back of the neck with a rock while walking in Manhattan’s Central Park on March 3. 

Stuhlbarg chased his attacker, who was taken into custody outside the park.
