The ‘Reservoir Dogs’ actor was wandering through the East Side of Manhattan last Wednesday (08.05.24) when he was “assaulted” and left with a swollen face.

The 66-year-old star’s representative confirmed Buscemi subsequently received treatment at hospital and is doing “OK”.

Xavier Israel, 27, was taken into custody after he caused injury to the back of his neck.
