A woman said she bought a ticket to see Cirque Du Soleil—and all she got was a punch in the face for having the nerve to ask a border patrol agent to stop fellating her coworker during the show.

The alleged attack happened at the Cirque du Soleil show in Del Mar at the end of last month, according to CBS Los Angeles.

The anonymous woman told CBS that she noticed something, uh, screwy going on in a nearby seat. She asked the pair if they could stop, but that only made the (apparently shameless) couple angry. The witness and victim told CBS she heard him say to his lady-friend, "You can take her, babe. I got your back." She says the man held the victim down while his companion punched her in the face. The victim showed CBS Los Angeles the bruise left by the alleged attack.

It turns out the frisky couple were Border Patrol agents named Kallie Helwig and Gerald Torello, Jr. (no photo of Mr. Torello was available). Both of them have been put on leave while the agency investigates the incident.
