An arrest has been made in connection with an October attack on Emmy-winning actor and comedian Rick Moranis on the Upper West Side in Manhattan, police confirmed Saturday. Per NBC News, transit officers spotted Ventura walking into the subway close to where the incident initially took place.

The New York Police Department (NYPD) did not identify Moranis at the time, but as news of the incident spread, the star's representative Troy Bailey confirmed he had been attacked.

"The Moranis attack is now the third open stranger-assault case against Ventura", added the Post.

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.

In a statement to Deadline, Moranis - who has worked sparingly over the last two decades - said he was "fine but grateful for everyone's thoughts and well wishes".

Police said Ventura was apprehended and later arrested on suspicion of assault in the second degree, which includes the allegation that he had "intent to cause serious physical injury to another person".

CBS reports that Moranis went to the hospital with head, hip and back pain, then reported the incident to the police.

Further details about the suspect, including whether he has retained a lawyer, were not immediately known.
