The gamer known as Sajeden streams her playing games to her many friends and fans - one of whom spotted the intruder and immediately called the police.

Gamers from around the world watched in horror as armed men entered her home and robbed the 28-year-old, but thanks to their quick action, were able to contact authorities.

One of the officers on the scene confirmed that one man was still in the apartment when officers arrived. He fled, but was taken into custody after a short pursuit by police.
