WATCH: Woman hits man who sexually assaults her at concert

An American-born concert goer is seen on video being groped by a man at a New Years Eve outdoor event in New Zealand. The woman, who was topless, had her breasts covered in paint, when the man snuck up behind her and groped before running away.

The woman and her friend persued the man, throwing a drink in his face and hitting him repeatedly.

Comments online have praised the woman and her friend for standing up to their attacker, saying women do not deserve to be assaulted no matter what they are or are not wearing; other comments accuse the woman of "asking for it".
