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

The 66-year-old star of Fargo and Boardwalk Empire was assaulted late 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 Sunday local time (Monday morning AEST) from his publicist.

“He is okay and appreciates everyone’s well wishes.”

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

Buscemi’s representative confirmed Sunday that the unidentified assault victim in the police statement was the actor.

The police department 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 31.

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