An anchor at KGET in Bakersfield, California was punched in the face on Wednesday, BakersfieldNow reported. Andres Herrera, a Telemundo anchor, was socked outside the studio.
(KGET News Director Mike) Trihey said Herrera called 911 as he walked after the man. Herrera asked the man what prompted the attack, and the man responded with an anti-media message.
“… the man said something like, ‘You guys are all part of the conspiracy. You’ve got all those antennas, and dishes … ” Trihey wrote in an email.
The man, Jason Aydelotte, was arrested and has a record. He also threatened to kill other anchors at the station, according to BakersfieldNow. KGET also wrote about the attack and the site has a video of the attack.
“It just goes to show that you never know when you’re going to be a victim, when it’s going to happen to you,” Herrera said.
