Rick Moranis Attack: Search Continues For Suspect After Police Question Person Of Interest

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - The search continues for the suspect in the apparently random attack of actor Rick Moranis.

Over the weekend, police said they were questioning someone in the case. However no charges were filed, no arrest made, and the search for the suspect is continuing.

The 67-year-old actor was attacked last Thursday, knocked to the ground, as he was walking on Central Park West near 70th Street.

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

Video shows the suspect wearing an "I Love New York" shirt.

Moranis, who starred in "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" and "Ghostbusters," has been off the big screen for years to focus on his children after his wife's passing, but recently appeared in a Mint Mobile commercial with Ryan Reynolds.

Reynolds tweeted Friday:

Anyone with information about the attack is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). You can also submit a tip via their website or on Twitter, @NYPDTips. All calls are kept confidential.
