An ABC reporter and her cameraman became the latest victims of the Battery Park ticket sellers — after one of the men assaulted the duo who were questioning him for a story, law enforcement sources said.
The 3 p.m. attack at the Battery Park City Ferry Terminal left the lensman on the ground, though it’s unclear if he was punched or shoved, sources said.
The reporter was slapped by the ticket hawker, the source added.
Sources said the suspect became belligerent with the pair, who were trying to conduct interviews for a story.
Charges against the man are pending.
The outburst came a day after Alec Baldwin had a public meltdown for getting duped into buying a bogus tour of the Statues of Liberty from an area ticket scammer.
The man’s arrest coincides with the city’s announcement of an “expanded” crackdown on the Battery Park ticket hawkers.
In its announcement, the city reiterated that the NYPD routinely enforces against ticket sellers in the area who mislead or intimidate tourists.
