Reporter Alex Bozarjian from WSAV-TV was on air with joggers as they ran past her at the Savannah Bridge Run 10K Saturday, when a man in a hat and sunglasses appeared to smack her as he ran past, video shows.
Bozarjian appeared stunned before composing herself and continuing her broadcast. She later tweeted:
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. https://t.co/PRLXkBY5hn

The Savannah Police Department told NBC News, “All I can say is we have made contact with Alexandrea and we are definitely going to be working with her in any capacity on how she’d like to move forward with this incident.”
Many on Twitter claim to have identified the man but the identity has not been confirmed.
