Police in Spain arrested a man on suspicion of sexual assault after he appeared to touch a TV journalist on the bottom as she was reporting live from the streets of Madrid.
The man approached Isa Balado, a journalist for the “En boca de todos” program on Spain’s Cuatro channel, as she was reporting on an alleged robbery on Tuesday.
The man can be seen approaching her and then appearing to touch her bottom as she’s talking to presenter Nacho Abad in the studio.
Balado tried to continue with her piece to camera, but Abad asked her if the man had just touched her bottom.
When Balado said he did, Abad asked her to put “this stupid guy” on camera.
The camera then zooms out to show Balado and the man.
“Do you really need to touch my bum?” she asked, before telling him that she’s live on television. “I’d like you to let me work.”
