AAP is reporting the crew had been in Rio for an hour when a transvestite attempted to steal camera gear by using a brick in a handbag.

Nine reporter, Christine Ahern, said her and the Nine team where at the famous Copacabana Beach when the incident occurred and where accompanied by a security team.

Ahern told 3AW this morning that “it all happened in a flash” with one of the security guards getting “clocked in the head” by the heavy handbag before he quickly ushered the crew into the safety of a hotel lobby.

Channel Seven are the official broadcaster of the Rio Olympics in Australia.
