NY1 Reporter Attacked By Sheet-Wearing Snack Bandit

Here is your morning “Only in New York” moment. NY1 reporter Vivian Lee was busy preparing for a story in Cobble Hill when a woman, draped in a white sheet, climbed in an NY1 van and began using Lee’s make-up and eating snacks. According to DNA Info, when Lee asked the make-up marauder to leave, she allegedly punched Lee in the neck.

Thankfully the van’s driver was able to control the attacker until authorities arrived. “I’m okay,” Lee told DNA Info, after the incident.

No word on what kind of snacks the attacker went for first. If there were Milanos in the van, we could (almost) understand.
