Pokemon Go Streamer Robbed and Assaulted Live on Stream

A Twitch streamer who goes by the name of Rickeybot was robbed and assaulted live on stream as he filmed himself playing Pokemon Go in Central Park, New York on Sunday September 18th.

Rickeybot, who has over 1,000 followers on streaming platform Twitch, was live streaming Pokemon Go when he was attacked by a man who punched him in the face before robbing him. The whole incident was captured live on camera and was streamed to Rickeybot’s audience as they helplessly watched on.

The suspect can be seen on camera approaching the streamer from behind. When he gets close enough, he grabs him around the neck and throws him to the ground, at which point he robs Rickeybot’s Samsung phone and runs off down the street. Unfortunately, the assailant hasn’t been apprehended yet and is still on the run.

As a result of the attack, Rickeybot suffered injuries to his jaw which left him needing to seek medical attention. However, to add insult to injury, Twitch handed him a 24 hour ban as a result of the attack, although that has since been lifted.

Thankfully, Rickeybot didn’t suffer any serious injuries, and his jaw was not broken, although he did suffer some minor injuries from the attack including a bump on the head and a cut on his elbow.
