A World Cup reporter from Argentina was allegedly robbed in the middle of a live report.
Dominique Metzger of Todo Noticias network says someone stole her wallet while she was interviewing fans ahead of Sunday’s opening World Cup match.
She says she didn’t notice at the time because of the crowd and all the noise.
Metzger says police eventually told her they would use security cameras and facial recognition technology to help find the culprit.
She also says authorities told her she would be able to choose the thief’s punishment - five years in prison or deportation. She told them “I just want my wallet back, I won’t be making the decision for the justice system”.
