Reporter Dominique Metzger reveals she’s been robbed live on air

Argentinian reporter Dominique Metzger was robbed at the World Cup with money and documents stolen from her handbag.

Metzger reported that the items were stolen shortly before the tournament’s first match from the Corniche area of Doha.

‘I had my small bag on me with all the things that one needs, my wallet, the keys to our hotel room, some napkins,’ said Metzger to a TN anchor.

‘And you were dancing, right?’ she was asked.

‘Yes, I was dancing with the crowd and I’m convinced that it was at that moment when someone opened the bag zipper and took my wallet,’ she replied.

‘I didn’t realise at that moment, you know you’re live on air, with music and crowds around you, and I was focused on you talking to me too. So I wasn’t paying attention.

‘After I finish my live report, I wanted to take my wallet to buy a water bottle and then I realised I didn’t have it.’

The response of the local police surprised Metzger, as she reported the incident to them.

It was later confirmed that authorities would identify the suspect; she was asked to choose what punishment the criminal would receive.

‘”Do you want us to sentence him to five years in prison, to be deported?” He asked me, to make the decision.’

‘I told them I just want my wallet back, I won’t be making the decision for the justice system,’ she said.
