The 67-year-old actor was attacked last Thursday, knocked to the ground, as he was walking on Central Park West near 70th Street.
Moranis’ management team says he’s fine and is grateful for everyone’s thoughts and well wishes.
Video shows the suspect wearing an “I Love New York” shirt.
Moranis, who starred in “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” and “Ghostbusters,” has been off the big screen for years to focus on his children after his wife’s passing, but recently appeared in a Mint Mobile commercial with Ryan Reynolds.
Reynolds tweeted Friday:
Should have known not to subject Rick to the year 2020. Glad to hear he’s okay.
