Actor Rick Moranis was punched in the face by a random passer-by on New York City’s Upper West Side and police said the assailant remained at large Friday.

A rep for the 67-year-old comedy star said in a statement provided to Deadline that Moranis is “fine but grateful for everyone’s thoughts and well wishes.”

Moranis was taking an early-morning walk Thursday near his home (see video clip below) when he was struck on Central Park West near West 70th Street.

The New York Police Department said the assailant used a closed fist to punch Moranis. The video shows the attacker take a sudden step toward Moranis and delivering the punch before resuming his gait as his victim remained on the ground. The attacker was wearing black, including an “I Love NY” sweatshirt. Source
