Boardwalk Empire star Michael Stuhlbarg is smacked in the back of the neck by rock-wielding homeless man near Central Park

Boardwalk Empire star Michael Stuhlbarg has been attacked by a rock-wielding homeless man near New York City's Central Park, according to police.

Stuhlbarg, 55, was approached seemingly at random by a homeless man in the Upper East Side on Sunday Night, the NYPD told DailyMail.com.

The actor was walking close to East 90th and East Drive around 7:45pm when Xavier Israel, 27, struck him in the back of his neck with a rock.

Police said Stuhlbarg 'received medical attention at the scene' for 'minor injuries'.

Stuhlbarg chased after Israel following the attack, and cops who were stationed outside the Russian consulate at 9 E 91 Street apprehended him, according to the New York Post.

Israel, who is homeless, was taken into custody and charged with assault.

He has previously been arrested for two assaults and a robbery in January 2022, cops confirmed.

In one incident that month, he knocked a 59-year-old man to the ground and mugged him after the man tried to offer him a coat amid freezing temperatures.

Israel was also arrested for attacking another person who offered him help - a 49-year-old woman, and for allegedly beating up two 18-year-olds in Central Park.

Boardwalk Empire star? People here know him from Call Me By Your Name.

If this is a Davida Rochelle post I will scream.

Isn't a man getting brutally attacked by a homeless man late at night in Central Park usually code for something?

7:45 is late at night?

No one ever said it was.

What the fuck is wrong with you?

Because it could have killed him you nitwit. A punch in the face does not kill you.

But a slap in the face can kill your career.

the guy's homeless. He goes to jail for this, he gets a roof over his head, medical dental, three meals a day a flushing toilet and a daily shower...and all the sex he can handle. What's the problem?

You're right R13, that's why I believe in the death penalty.

What did Stuhlbarg plan to do to him if he caught him?

Aren’t New Yonkers scared to leave the house now? It seems like a free for all of violence.

R18. Well, in addition to anything else, it’s the autonomic system kicking in. Why assume it was a particularly conscious or strategic plan to pursue his assailant?

Has the attacker been released yet?

Maybe it was his understudy.

Was he walking his dog?

It was too early in the evening for that, Kevin.

CNN did a segment on high end thieves out west. There's apparently a gang from Chile that breaks in to wealthy people's homes a robs them. Burglars.

I think this will help Michael segue into a middle aged relatable action star. It might make a cool television series, like The Love Boat, where all the people Michael has worked with will be in New York for some fascinating project, then walk home at night, and are mugged by interesting thug characters, from all the villains in his films.

Michael does pretty well as a character actor. He's very good.
