Rick Moranis, the star of Ghostbusters and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, has told police in New York he wants them to 'catch the bad guy' who punched him in the head, knocking him to the ground as he walked on the Upper West Side on Thursday.

A group of officers from the NYPD visited the actor at his home on the Upper West Side and then updated reporters on his condition following the unprovoked attack.

'[Moranis] is doing well. He is strong. He is recovering,' said Detective Kaz Daughtry, one of six cops with the NYPD's new Community Affairs Rapid Response who visited the actor at his home on Friday afternoon. 

'He just wants us to catch the bad guy and all this to go away,' the officer said.

'He has some injuries to his left side,' said Daughtry, explaining that Moranis has 'some pain on the left side of his leg.' 

'At this moment, [Moranis] just wants to stay home, he just wants to recover, and he just wants, you know, peace of mind, and once he gets better, then he is going to go out and do his daily things that he usually does,' Officer Jonadel Dorrejo added. 

The horrifying assault was caught on surveillance camera and shows Moranis, 67, walking southbound on Central Park West near West 70th Street at about 7.30am on Thursday morning.
