Alvarez said she was getting off the train when she suddenly felt someone pinching her bum.

She wrote on social media: “I was leaving the train, I walked a few steps and then I felt someone pinching my bum. It wasn’t a knock or an accident, I felt his hand grabbing my bum and then turned around to see who it was.”

Alvarez said that she met her dad shortly after confronting the young man, and he allegedly stormed onto the platform and punched him.

She claimed that after her father became involved, the authorities reacted and arrested the young man.

It is unclear whether an investigation has been opened.

Netizen ‘Max Ehrsam’ commented: “At least there is one more idiot in the world who will now think twice before grabbing another person’s behind without consent.”

‘Vega’ said: “I would have done the same thing as your dad!”

‘Laura’ wrote: “It was lucky that your dad was nearby. Sadly, I think all women have similar stories. I congratulate you for your stand.”

‘Chicharo de Maruchan’ said: “I like how you and your father put that guy in his place. I am proud of your reaction, you did it the best way!”
