An American TV reporter has been left “violated” and “embarrassed” after being smacked on the bottom during a live broadcast.
WSAV News’ Alex Bozarjian was reporting on a 10 kilometre family fun run in Savannah in Atlanta when a male participant ran up behind and accosted her. Bozarjian appears visibly shaken following the incident.

She later condemned the runner via a post on social media: “To the man who smacked my butt on live TV this morning: you violated, objectified, and embarrassed me.
“No woman should EVER have to put up with this at work or anywhere! Do better.”
As yet the culprit has not been found, however, organisers of the fun run have vowed to take action.
“Alex, what happened today is 100 per cent unacceptable,” a spokesperson said. “You have my assurance we will identify him.
“This will not be tolerated at our events. Glad we have race bibs and photos for easy identification.”
