New Information Surfaced Regarding The Guy Wanted In The NYC Sucker-Punch Attack By Steve Buscemi


Two senior municipal officials with knowledge of the inquiry claim that the man named as the suspect in an alleged sucker-punch attack on actor Steve Buscemi was last seen at a Brooklyn shelter a few days ago.

According to city officials who spoke with NBC New York, Clifton Williams was spotted on May 11 at a men’s shelter located on Clay Street in Greenpoint. According to the officials, Williams, 50, spent three nights at the shelter following the attack.

Williams has spent the last few years residing in local shelters. He first resided at the Bellevue Men’s Shelter in April before moving to Greenpoint.

The suspect in the May 8 attack on the “Boardwalk Empire” star in Kips Bay was named on Tuesday. According to two NYPD sources, Buscemi was texting on his phone while leaning against a wall at around noon when a stranger approached and struck him across the face.

Buscemi was taken to Bellevue Hospital by EMS after they were summoned to Third Avenue and East 28th Street. According to the police, the actor received treatment for what appeared to be a random attack-related bruise, swelling, and bleeding to his left eye.

The 66-year-old “is ok and appreciates everyone’s well wishes, though incredibly sad for everyone that this has happened to while also walking the streets of NY,” the actor’s rep said, confirming details of the violent event over the weekend.

The NYPD made surveillance photos of the suspect public a few days following the reported attack in the hopes of apprehending him. There is still a search going on for Williams.
