Sunday night’s suspected attack would not be the first time that Stuhlbarg’s suspected attacker was arrested for assault in NYC.

Israel was reportedly arrested again that same month after he attacked a 49-year-old woman before allegedly targeting two 18-year-olds in Central Park.

The first incident, in which Israel attacked a man who offered him a coat, was reportedly caught on surveillance footage. The video showed the 59-year-old victim approach Israel as Israel lay on the sidewalk.

The victim appeared to place a jacket that he was wearing on Israel before Israel jumped up and pushed the Good Samaritan to the ground.

Israel then stole the man’s wallet from his back pocket before fleeing the scene. Then, when the victim attempted to recover his wallet, Israel reportedly punched him and threw him back down onto the ground.

Michael Stuhlbarg is perhaps best known for his role as Arnold Rothstein in the first four seasons of Boardwalk Empire from 2010 to 2013.

Israel was later arrested after the incident. The NYPD officers who apprehended Israel reportedly found nearly $1,500 in cash stuffed into his pants.
