NYPD Releases Photo of Thug Who Randomly Punched 1980s Actor Rick Moranis

(New York Post) The NYPD released a close-up surveillance image Friday of the man wanted for randomly attacking actor Rick Moranis on the Upper West Side.

The unidentified suspect pictured in the photo, which was taken from inside a city subway station, is seen wearing a black “I ❤ NY” sweatshirt with the hood on, a backpack, and a black face mask covering his mouth.

Moranis, 67, was walking south on Central Park West near West 70th Street — steps from his apartment building — around 7:30 a.m. Thursday when a thug suddenly clocked him in the head, knocking him to the ground, police said.

The unprovoked attack was also caught on surveillance video, previously released by police. In it, the suspect can be seen slugging Moranis before calmly walking off.

A rep for Moranis confirmed to The Post Friday that the largely reclusive “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” and “Ghostbusters” star was the victim of the assault.
