The Post reports Ventura was arraigned "on a slew of charges" in Manhattan Criminal Court late Sunday, including an assault rap for the Moranis attack.

Suspect Marquis Ventura was spotted by transit officers in the subway system near 72nd Street and Broadway, a few blocks from where the October 1 assault took place at Central Park West near 70th Street, NBC News reported.

A 35-year-old man was arrested in the New York City for attack on the actor Rick Moranis of "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" fame, authorities said.

The suspect was intercepted by the police in the subway system, a few meters away from where the attack had happened last month, police said.

The NYPD confirmed on Twitter that the suspect had been apprehended. Now, news surfaced, noting a suspect has been arrested in the case.

The suspect was wearing a dark "I [love] NY" sweatshirt, sneakers, and black trousers in the video.

"The unidentified male then fled northbound on foot. 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".

The victim was Moranis, sources later confirmed.

"As a single parent, I just found that it was too hard to manage to raise my kids and to do the traveling involved in making movies", Moranis told USA Today.

The Hollywood Reporter revealed in February 2020 that Moranis would be reprising his role in "Shrunk", a new sequel in the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids series where he played the role of Wayne Szalinski.
