The man who was allegedly punched in the face by Alec Baldwin over a parking space on Friday has reportedly spoken out about the situation.
Although the New York Police Department has not released the name of the man, Page Six reported that the alleged 49-year-old victim is Wojciech Cieszkowski, who survived the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013.
On Saturday, Cieszkowski told the outlet that he’s “recovering” from the incident, adding that although he felt “sore…I’ll be fine.”
The outlet reported that Cieszkowski had no discernible marks on his face.
A rep for Baldwin did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment about the remarks. The actor, 60, has denied that he “punched anyone over a parking spot.”
“Normally, I would not comment on something as egregiously misstated as today’s story. However, the assertion that I punched anyone over a parking spot is false,” Baldwin tweeted Friday evening. “I wanted to go on the record stating as much. I realize that it has become a sport to tag people was many negative charges and defaming allegations as possible for the purposes of clickbait entertainment.”
In a follow-up message, Baldwin wrote, “Fortunately, no matter how reverberating the echos [sic], it doesn’t make the statements true.”
