Shocking footage captures Philly reporter being assaulted LIVE ON AIR as woman punches her in the head

Iris Delgado was speaking to Telemundo 62 cameras outside Philadelphia City Hall in Pennsylvania on Wednesday evening.

Just as her report nears its end a woman in a green t-shirt approaches and taps her on the arm, saying ‘Excuse me’.

Ever the professional Delgado simply ignores her – although looks slightly irked –  as she passes to a male reporter back in the studio. 

But as he takes over the woman suddenly grabs Delgado by her hair and violently yanks her backwards before punching her in the face.
