Popular YouTuber Jacob ‘Alpharad’ Rabon revealed on Twitter he had been robbed at gunpoint, calling the experience “haunting.”

Alpharad is considered one of the top Smash content creators on YouTube. But, he has no problem branching out to other games, and even putting on MrBeast-style challenges.

However, on November 14, Alpha informed fans on Twitter that he had just been robbed at gunpoint. Not only that, but it happened in broad daylight.

“Got robbed at gunpoint while out with some close friends at 9am in broad daylight,” he tweeted. “We are all okay now, but oh my god. It was haunting.”

“Tell the ones you love that you love them and all that,” Rabon added. “It’s a terrifying experience thinking you’re potentially seconds away from the end.”
