A video has gone viral showing the moment CNN reporter Bruna Macedo was mugged at knifepoint during a live broadcast in Brazil. The suspect has now been arrested.
According to “Veja SaoPaulo” local news, the Civil Police has now arrested the man (27) who robbed CNN Brazil reporter Bruna Macedo last month.
According to an official statement from the Public Security Secretariat, Bruna was able to recognize the homeless man, and the police report was registered in the 2nd DP, in Bom Retiro.
The incident happened when Bruna Macedo was in the middle of reporting about rising water levels from heavy rain at Sao Paulo’s Bandeiras Bridge when the suspect is first seen in the background crossing the bridge.
About two minutes later, while Macedo is talking to anchor Rafael Colombo, the man appears right next to her.
Macedo at first greets the man as Colombo continues to talk about the water levels. Then all of a sudden the suspect pulls a knife on the CNN reporter — causing her to step back as the camera cuts to the scene of a wet street.
Macedo handed over two phones during the mugging. She wasn’t injured.
“She had a terrible scare but she is fine,” Colombo told Brazilian newspaper Fohla de Sao Pauolo, according to the outlet.
