ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – News 4’s Matt Sczesny was on a story Monday evening in Alorton, Illinois when he was attacked.

While working on a story across from the Alorton Police Department, a man walked up to Matt and started punching him.

Matt and the man struggled for 10 seconds or so before the man ran off.  It appears the attacker left when he heard Matt’s photographer coming to help. The suspect did not ask for or take anything during the attack.

News 4 is happy to report that Matt is OK and in good spirits. Tuesday morning, Matt tweeted (@KMOVMatt), "I'm feeling ok. Certainly caught me by surprise. I appreciate everyone's concern.

Police are still looking for the suspect.
