In a shocking incident that has caught the attention of fans and the entertainment community, beloved actor Steve Buscemi was the victim of an unprovoked attack on the streets of Manhattan. The incident occurred late Wednesday morning, leaving the renowned actor with significant injuries but, fortunately, in stable condition.

Best known for his memorable roles in hits like Fargo and Boardwalk Empire, the 66-year-old actor experienced bruising, swelling, and bleeding to his left eye after being punched in the face. He was promptly taken to a local hospital, where he received treatment for his injuries.

Following the incident, a statement from Buscemi's publicist sought to reassure fans: “Steve Buscemi was assaulted in Mid-Town Manhattan, another victim of a random act of violence in the city. He is ok and appreciates everyone’s well wishes.”

The alarming event was first reported by the New York Post, and the New York Police Department provided details about the ongoing investigation. Despite the frightful experience, the police have yet to make any arrests.

This incident is part of a disturbing trend of attacks on celebrities in the city. Michael Stuhlbarg, Buscemi’s co-star from Boardwalk Empire, also became a victim of an assault last month in Central Park. Fortunately, in Stuhlbarg's case, the assailant was apprehended.
