Cops busted a man in connection with the random Christmas Eve cinder block attack on a member of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s staff in Midtown Manhattan, police sources told The Post Friday.

Twenty-eight-year-old Christopher Guzman was charged with second-degree assault for allegedly attacking 51-year-old Lisa Cavanaugh, the sources said.

Cavanaugh had just left work at Cuomo’s Midtown office and was passing a construction site at Third Avenue near East 48th Street at around 2:15 p.m. when Guzman allegedly crept up behind her and hit her in the back of the head with a concrete block, according to the NYPD.

Cavanaugh was temporarily knocked unconscious, and suffered a two-inch deep laceration to her head.

She underwent a CAT scan at Bellevue Hospital, where she is expected to survive the attack, the sources said.

The terrifying daytime attack happened just six blocks from the governor’s Third Avenue offices.

Cavanaugh works as a recruitment and appointments officer in the executive chamber.
