Joey and her friend were taking pictures on the Praia do Braga beach in the town of Cabo Frio in the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro when she saw a man masturbating.
As soon as the incident happened Vieira decided to confront the man, named as Josenie Viana Ferreira. The MMA fighter took action by giving him a series of punches, who at that time was topless but dressed in swimming shorts.
Vieira later said: “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 who was wearing a one-piece black bathing suit at that time responded by punching and kicking the man. She even called the police.
On the other side, Josenie Viana Ferreira denied he had not been masturbating and did nothing wrong. He reportedly told police that he had simply been urinating at that time.
After his release Vieira told media:
“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.”
