    Local authorities have already promised to find the perpetrator, according to a tweet posted by the reporter himself.

    Diego Ordinola, a reporter for DirecTV Sports, was held up along with his film crew by a gun-toting criminal in broad daylight.

    As Ordinola explained on Twitter, the incident occurred near the Estadio Monumental, a football stadium in Tarqui in northern Guayaquil, Ecuador.

    The footage of the robbery shows the perpetrator shouting before grabbing a phone from someone out of shot and fleeing.

    ​The crew attempted to give chase after a pause, and managed to catch a glimpse of the culprit fleeing on the back of a motorbike.

    Commenting on the situation on Twitter, Ordinola said that local cops have promised to hunt down those responsible.
