In video of the incident, Bozarjian is taken aback after the swat and stares off in the direction that Callaway ran before resuming her report. The moment went viral after Bozarjian called out the assault.
"It's not OK to help yourself to a woman's body just because you feel like it," Bozarjian told CBS News. "It's not playful. He hurt me both physically and emotionally."
