Actor Steve Buscemi Randomly Attacked in Crime-Ridden NYC

‘Boardwalk Empire’ star and Brooklyn native Steve Buscemi was attacked in the street in New York City as he strolled through Kips Bay.

The attack is one of the latest unprovoked assaults in the five boroughs, law enforcement sources told The New York Post.

The actor suffered swelling to his face and left eye and was rushed to Bellevue Hospital for treatment.

The deranged assailant took off after the attack and is still yet to be located, police said.

“Steve Buscemi was assaulted in Mid-Town Manhattan, another victim of a random act of violence in the city,” Buscemi’s publicist said in a statement to The Post.

“He is ok and appreciates everyone’s well wishes, though incredibly sad for everyone that this has happened to while also walking the streets of New York.”

The attack took place happened around 11:48 a.m. on Wednesday in front of 369 Third Ave.

“I saw he was with a woman, and then through the corner of the window I saw him trip and fall backwards,” a worker in the area who witnessed part of the assault told The Post.

“He right away got up and ran in the opposite direction. I didn’t see who hit him.

“It worries me for when we close because we close at 11 and it can get scary around that time,” said the woman, who asked to be identified only as Nat.

The NYPD released surveillance photos of the alleged attacker, showing a bearded man wearing a baseball cap, a blue t-shirt, and black sweatpants.

Buscemi, a former FDNY firefighter, has a movie career that spans decades and includes roles in award-winning films like “Fargo” and “Reservoir Dogs.”

The actor also earned wide acclaim for his portrayal of corrupt Atlantic City pol Enoch “Nucky” Thompson in the hit HBO series “Boardwalk Empire.”

Buscemi became the second actor from the popular series to fall victim to random New York City street violence in 2024.

In March, actor Michael Stuhbarg, who played gangster Arnold Rothstein on the show, was struck in the back of the neck with a rock while he was out for a run on the Upper East Side.

NYPD arrested a deranged vagrant, Xavier Israel, 27, for the assault, which took place near East 90th Street and East Drive.

An NYPD spokesperson said that Buscemi’s attack remains at large.
