Rickeybot, a Twitch streamer, was attacked and mugged while playing Pokemon Go in New York.
The moment the gamer was mugged was streamed online via Twitch. The stream even managed to capture the robbers escape.
The criminal fled into the bushes where he disabled Rickey’s phone.
Rickey said: “I was already on the phone with the 22 precinct in NYC before the phones stopped broadcasting.”
The Pokemon Go fan is fine. He spent an hour with the police before they took him to the hospital.
