Telemundo Reporter Iris Delgado Punched On Live TV

Delgado had been wrapping up a report outside of City Hall on Thursday night — when a woman approached her.

Footage of the live report shows the woman tapping Delgado on the arm, saying, “Excuse me, excuse me.” Suddenly, the woman punches Delgado in the head and slaps her face. The camera immediately switches back to the studio, where anchor Ramon Zayas is heard saying, “Ay, dios mio!” in shock.

Telemundo and NBCUniversal have not yet commented on the incident.

The Philadelphia district attorney’s office announced that Waheedah Wilson has been charged for the assault.

Online court documents say Wilson’s been charged with simple assault and recklessly endangering another person.
