Bill Kenny, a neighbor, told CBS2 he was also randomly attacked recently in Brooklyn and says change needs to happen.

"It didn't surprise or shock me. Like, you know, this has happened well before myself and Mr. Moranis. It's going to continue to happen unless something is done," he said.

Moranis' management team says he's fine and is grateful for everyone's thoughts and well wishes.

There are no charges yet.
