A reporter from Canal 5 Noticias was sucker-punched from behind during a live report on Argentina's anti-crime and government demonstrations. Nestor Dib was able to break free from Nicolas Ayuso's clutches, giving police the opportunity to arrest the assailant. Unfazed, Dib continued doing the report, black eye and all.

Ayuno retreated to Twitter, claiming that Dib and other C5N employees had been antagonizing him prior to his punch. He even presented a YouTube video (the second one underneath) depicting the events leading up to his attack in an effort to prove that he wasn't the aggressor. 

Regardless of the true origins of the conflict, all respect to Dib for proceeding with the broadcast despite wearing the wrath of Ayuno on his face.
