In the past, we've seen some hilarious moments pertaining to streamers. Some have been caught flirting live, while others simply forgot their camera was on. Regardless, we've seen some tragedies and near tragedies as well, with some streamers even being caught in near-death situations.
With such a high number of streamers streaming a large part of their day, there are bound to be mishaps along the way. In this article, we look at five streamers who got robbed during their livestreams.
Couple’s equipment gets snatched
The first incident follows a couple walking at night through the streets of Cape Town, South Africa. The girl can be seen browsing her phone, when a man in a green jacket walks up to her and tries to snatch their equipment away. The couple fights back, but the man is able to escape with their stuff.
However, the thief is caught further down the street by a couple of police officers. The streamers find them, and are able to get their equipment back. Unlike some other streamers on this list, they were lucky enough to get their stuff back!
Well, this incident is scary, and unfortunate. We can see Twitch streamer Sajedene stream Dota gameplay on the screen, when all of a sudden she hears loud noises in her house. As it turns out, a robber manages to enter the house and steals a lot of her things at gun point.

Man’s equipment gets stolen
The next streamer was walking alone in a street in Vietnam, when a stranger walked up to him to warn him about the area. Apparently, the street was controlled by the area's mafia, and they would regularly attack foreigners to steal their things.

Unlike what one would expect from most streamers caught off-guard, this streamer was unfazed. Viewers can listen to the argument away from screen, as she keeps him down until police arrives at her house. You can watch the entire incident in the video at the end of the article.
