Written by on 15 November 2020

A New York man has been arrested in connection with an unprovoked assault against Rick Moranis.

The incident happened as the 67-year-old actor was walking near Central Park in October.

New York City police said 35-year-old Marquis Ventura, who is believed to be homeless, was arrested on Saturday afternoon.

Video released by police showed a man wearing a black “I (heart) NY” sweatshirt hit Moranis with a sucker punch and knock him to the ground.

Police did not identify Moranis at the time, but his representative, Troy Bailey, confirmed the actor had been attacked.
