A NY man was arrested on Saturday in connection with an unprovoked assault against Rick Moranis that occurred as the 67-year-old actor was walking near Central Park in October.

Police were questioning the 35-year-old man before bringing him to Central Booking Saturday night, law enforcement sources said.

Police did not identify the victim as Moranis, but noted the attack outside the actor's Upper West Side building.

The NYPD confirmed on Twitter that the suspect had been apprehended.

Ventura was arrested and later arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault, which included the charge that he "had the intent to cause serious bodily injury to another person".

Moranis' rep said at the time: "He is fine but grateful for everyone's thoughts and well wishes". "The victim suffered from pain to the head, back, and right hip and travelled by private means to an area hospital for evaluation, before reporting the incident to police at the 20th Precinct".

Police tweeted a surveillance video of the assault and offered a reward of up to $2,500 for information about the suspect.
