‘This situation highlights a larger issue of hooliganism on our streets and the need for effective law enforcement responses to such behavior.’

‘As a citizen and a parent, I find it unacceptable that groups can freely engage in this kind of behavior, causing fear and chaos, while the response from authorities seems insufficient,’ he continued, before urging law enforcement to ‘take decisive action.’

‘I have always been an advocate for standing up against intimidation and misconduct, and this incident reinforces my belief in the importance of personal and community safety’.

He concluded: ‘I am thankful for the support of my family, friends, and fans during this time. 

‘It’s in challenging moments like these that the strength and unity of our community are most vital. Happy new year.’

A source told DailyMail.com that Ziering is ‘doing okay’ after the incident.

It was not immediately clear if anyone was arrested in connection with the incident as of Sunday evening, TMZ reported, noting that ‘an official report’ lists the Newark, New Jersey-born actor ‘as the victim’ in the incident.

In an additional video published by the outlet, Ziering appeared to be consoling Mia, who appeared visibly upset.
