Imagine doing a live report on national television and someone harasses you for the fun of it.
That’s exactly what happened to Cuatro journalist Isa Balado, she was reporting live on a Madrid robbery when a man walked passed her and allegedly grabbed her bottom.
She explained that she was doing a live report to the man and continued filming, however, the News Anchor, Nacho Abad insisted that she put the man in front of the camera.
Balado proceeded to confront the man who completely denied grabbing her bottom even though, it was caught on live television and witnessed not only by viewers but also employees.
As he walked away, he attempted to touch her head as she ducked out of the way.
Spanish Police have said that the man has been arrested for sexually assaulting a reporter.
Politicians have also sent their support to the journalist, saying the incident should not go unpunished.
