RT Reporter Robbed by Youths On-Air While Covering Baltimore Protests2015-04-26T03:34:29.000Z

A female reporter covering the Baltimore protests over the death of Freddie Gray was robbed of her equipment by youths participating in the coinciding riots and looting.

The video was initially shared by Russian Times, but it’s unconfirmed that the Russian state-funded television network was the victim of the attack. However, it sounds as though the reporter is an international correspondent as after she is robbed, she chases down the youths and shouts “You give it back!” in broken English.

Fortunately for the reporter police were there to apprehend her assailants, whose captured is recorded on camera via her smartphone.

Protests over the death of Freddie Gray, an African-American man who died of a spinal cord injury while in police custody, reached a zenith last night in Maryland. CNN reports that protesters also damaged cars and that 12 were arrested.
