The journalist was covering a feminist protest in Mexico City.
It was a shocking sight on live TV when a journalist, who was covering a feminist protest in Mexico City, was punched in the face by an unidentified man.
Video footage published by TV network ADM 40, shows reporter, Juan Manuel Jimenez, is seen standing in the middle of the crowd as women throw glitter at him while he continues speaking to the camera. Moments later, a man dressed in a white T-shirt and blue baseball cap appears from the crowd of women protesters and knocks Jimenez unconscious, before calmly walking away.
According to reports in Independent.co.uk, the feminist protests were triggered by allegations that two teenage girls were raped by a group of policemen. The demonstrations have become known as the "glitter protests" after marchers doused the city's police chief in pink glitter.
While in another protest footage shared on social media, news presenter, Melissa del Pozo de Milenio, of the Milenio Televisión network also appears to be attacked by protesters. The journalist can be seen struggling with a woman dressed in black who has her face covered.
Following the incidents of attacking journalists, Mexico City mayor, Claudia Sheinbaum, the first woman elected to head the city's government, tweeted the attorney general's office of the metropolis will investigate and arrest those who attacked journalists.
