Watch: Pokemon GO streamer robbed live

Pokemon GO App Popularity Soars As Australians Join Worldwide Craze

Pokemon GO Twitch streamer Rickeybot was robbed live on air while playing the game in central park.

Rickeybot has streamed from Central Park – at night – repeatedly over the last week, and advertised his streams beforehand via Twitter, reports Eurogamer.

“The spot where he was mugged was on a lit street on the main road that runs through the park.”

“But anyone who was watching the stream would know exactly where he was, and how his attention would be distracted by his phone screen.”

Rickeybot later tweeted that his jaw was “messed up” and that he would be leaving for the hospital after talking to the police.
