Actor Michael Stuhlbarg hit in back of the neck with rock in Central Park

Actor Michael Stuhlbarg, known for the movie “Call Me by Your Name” and TV’s “Boardwalk Empire,” was hit in the back of the neck with a rock Sunday night while in New York, according to police.

Police responded around 7:45 p.m. ET Sunday to a “call of an assault in progress in the vicinity of 90th Street and East Drive” near the reservoir in Central Park to find a man, 55, who “was struck in the head by an unknown object.”

“A preliminary investigation determined that a 27-year-old male threw a rock, striking the victim in the back of the neck, causing an abrasion,” the New York City Police Department said in an email to CNN on Monday.

“The victim chased the 27-year-old male to the front of 9 East 91st Street where uniformed officers took the 27-year-old male into custody without further incident. The victim refused medical attention at the scene,” NYPD added.

A law enforcement official confirmed Stuhlbarg was the victim hit with a rock to CNN on Monday.

CNN has reached out to representatives for Stuhlbarg.

The actor has almost 60 credits to his name, including 2018 best picture Oscar winner “The Shape of Water,” 2016’s “Arrival” and the Amazon Prime series “Transparent.” He played Arnold Rothstein across the first four seasons of HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire.” (HBO, like CNN, is owned by Warner Bros. Discovery.)

The suspect, Xavier Israel, who was arraigned Monday, is facing an assault charge according to court records.

In a statement to CNN later on Monday, Rachel Best, press officer for the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, said the presiding judge on the case granted The People’s request for bail. Israel’s next court appearance is scheduled for April 5.

What an asshole.

Good for Michael, chasing him down.

New Yorkers need to start fighting back.

Why so vague?

In the pre-'woke' days, they would list if the perpetrator was white, black, Latino, Asian, etc.

Was he “rambling”?

1. I can’t believe he chased down a 27 year-old.

2. That guy doesn’t look 27.

The rock throwing? I guess that just happens now.

Someone throws a rock that causes a minor injury to a celebrity no one has ever heard of before. Must be a slow news day.

R6 needs to be pummeled in the head with a rock.

Preferably, a very LARGE rock.

R7, it would take a boulder to bust the thick skull of R6.

Wokes are so inconsistent. They hide the race if the perpetrator is not white, yet they assume the gender without checking it first with him/her/them.

This quote from Michael Stuhlbarg in "Call Me By Your Name," seems oddly appropriate.

Why is race so important to you, Defacto?

Because you’re a racist.

He’s right of course, Defacto.

He’d be totally right to ask, “why is Defacto posting a thread on a minor assault in Manhattan, but not a shooting in his much more violent, criminal Pittsburgh?”

Is Defacto misleading us for dishonest, political purposes? Nah!!!

Did Michael actually apprehend the guy?

That sounds dangerous.

You never know how psychotic someone like this can be.

He could have had a gun or a knife. And then what?

by Anonymousreply 16April 2, 2024 1:19 PM

If he had a gun he would have used it instead of a rock, I would imagine. He could have had a knife, true.

This is one of the things Michael Bloomberg bowed to when he was mayor. He didn’t necessarily believe that a perpetrator’s race should be hidden, but he got so much pressure from the black community that he advised the NYPD to start talking in vague terms.

Descriptions went: The police are looking for a man in his 30s, approximately 6’2” 210 lbs.

The black community also loudly protested mentioning how someone was dressed: hoodie meant they were black. So hoodie was changed to sweatshirt.

by Anonymousreply 18April 2, 2024 1:27 PM

They apprehended the guy on the spot, so why do they need to identify his race in this case? If he hadn't been caught, sure. But here he was already in custody.

In Europe people are joking that when a perpetrator of a violent crime is described as "a man" in news, you know he is a Muslim from Middle eastern or African country.

R19 Don't try to explain that to the racist squad of DL

by Anonymousreply 21April 2, 2024 9:31 PM

R21 the word racist has been prostituted so much by manipulative neoliberal whores, that it means nothing already. People are going to start to own this slur, like blacks did with the infamous n word.

by Anonymousreply 22April 3, 2024 6:59 AM

I was just thinking that the amount of publicity Michael is getting is enormous with a relatively small personal cost.

For R6 and others who have not heard of him, this is because he is completely in his characters' mind and he becomes invisible.

Have you heard of any of these movies and TV shows ?

Call Me By Your Name; A Serious Man; Shape of Water; Blue Jasmine; Steve Jobs; Hugo; Pawn Sacrifice; Lincoln; The Post; Trumbo; The Looming Tower; Hitchcock; Gore; Miles Ahead; The Staircase; Boardwalk Empire; Dopesick; Fargo (as mentioned); Your Honor. (and many more).

He opened last night on Broadway in Patriots. I hope that more people will go see the play because of this.

OK, I know you never heard of him R6, but that is nothing to brag about. He is also the nicest person you could ever meet.

You don't know what the fuck you're talking about. Reputable newspapers stopped identifying crime suspects by race long before right-wingers like you started whining about what they perceive as "woke." Race was mentioned only when it was one element in descriptions of suspects who were still at large.

You're wrong.

If a white man attacks a "minority" his race is immediately in the news.

R28 stop lying bitch, as R29 have mentioned, if s white man commits a crime, particularly on a minority, it would be the headlines on the news, even if race is completely irrelevant in the case. In the opposite case, race would be censored, even when there is series of racially motivated crimes. But you know that. And idiots like you are what will bring far right to power.
