A Brazilian woman has discovered that even talking about crime in Rio de Janeiro is dangerous after she was robbed during a live TV interview on the subject.

In the video, the woman is busy speaking about the lack of police presence near Rio de Janeiro’s main train station when a mugger runs past, ripping off her necklace. The reporter gives chase, pursuing the mugger down the busy street. The thief then drops the necklace as he is running and it is returned to the woman.
