67-year-old Moranis was attacked in his Upper West Side apartment On October 1 after returning from his morning walk. Ventura was believed to have knocked the actor to the ground.

Following the attack, Moranis took himself to a hospital where it was discovered that he sustained some injuries. After Moranis reported the incident, a surveillance image of Ventura wearing an "I Love New York" hoodie, and a face mask was released publicly to aid his arrest.

Moranis left Hollywood over two decades ago to focus on raising his two kids as a single parent.

The team reportedly revealed that while visiting, Moranis stated that all he wanted was for the assailant to be arrested so everything could go away.

This comes as no surprise as Moranis left Hollywood over two decades ago to focus on raising his two kids as a single parent. However, in September, the actor made headlines for appearing in a commercial for Mint Mobile alongside fellow Canadian native actor Ryan Reynolds.

In addition to the commercial, Moranis is also expected to appear in an upcoming Disney movie "Shrunk," and without a doubt, fans can not wait to see the legendary actor back on their screen.
