New York City councilwoman assaulted by a stranger during ‘creepy’ live TV interview

A New York City councilwoman found herself on the receiving end of an unexpected and “creepy” kiss from a stranger during a TV interview with CBS New York.

A video posted to Twitter Thursday shows Councilwoman Inna Vernikov being interviewed on Brighton Beach in Brooklyn when a man wearing a hat comes seemingly out of nowhere and plants a kiss on her cheek.

“What the f—?” Vernikov said, turning her head to look at the man, who walked away with a smile on his face.
