Brazilian mixed martial arts fighter, Joyce Vieira, punched an alleged pervert who was performing a sex act while she was having a swimwear photo shoot with her friend.

The 27-year-old and a friend were taking pictures on the Praia do Braga beach in the town of Cabo Frio in Rio de Janeiro when the man, who has been identified as Josenei Viana Ferreira, 26, approached in a state of undress.

Joyce, who is known as 'Princess Fiona' by her fans, said the man had his shorts down and was standing in front of her and her friend while performing a sex act on himself in public.

Vieira tried to have a conversation with the man but he refused to speak, and that provoked her to react violently.

"When I looked over there he had his shorts down and was standing on a path where people pass all the time, including children. He was visibly erect, making sounds and moaning," Vieira told Correio24horas via translation.

She reported the incident to the police and Ferreira was arrested for committing an “obscene act”. However, he was later released after giving a statement and denying the crime.

An angry Vieira told local media after his release: “We feel powerless. It's very strange because he's going to be in the same city as me, and who knows he might be in the same places.

“That's why I have received an innumerable number of messages from women saying that [in similar situations] they didn't file a report, because they know the suspects would end up being released. I think the punishment for these cases should be more severe.”

The case is reportedly still open and the police are continuing the investigation with the Inspector specialised in attending to Women in Cabo Frio, Juliana Rattes, stating that the case will be taken to the Public Ministry “who will act together with Special Criminal Court.”
