(BANT) – A woman who was doing an interview with a local TV news station at last night’s protests over the now-cancelled speech by Milo Yiannopolous at UC Berkeley was pepper sprayed by what looked to be a protestor right after the interview ended.

A video posted to Twitter shows the unidentified woman speaking on camera with Wayne Freedman from ABC 7 news in San Francisco. She starts to walk away when the apparent protestor comes in from her right and sprays her in the face with pepper spray. At that point the video ends.

The Twitter user who posted the video, @janeygak, also posted “My friend was giving an interview when some coward pepper sprayed her.”
