Female YouTuber Arrested for Assaulting Boyfriend on Live
A YouTuber in her 30s was arrested by the police during a livestream.
On the 30th, the Gimpo Police Station in Gyeonggi Province announced that they applied for an arrest warrant for a woman in her 30s, identified as Ms. A, on charges of special assault.
Ms. A, known as a YouTuber, is accused of injuring her boyfriend, a man in his 40s known as Mr. B, by swinging a weapon at his knee at her home in Gimpo around 8 p.m. the previous day.
The initial reporter was none other than a viewer. It was reported that the shocking scene of Ms. A swinging the weapon was broadcasted live, and viewers were watching at the time.
After the police, who had arrived at the scene, separated the two parties, they arrested Ms. A on the spot.
According to the police investigation, Ms. A was live streaming on the internet while drinking with Mr. B, and it was understood that she committed the crime in a fit of rage after suddenly getting into a physical fight.
Fortunately, Mr. B only received emergency treatment and did not require hospital treatment, according to a police official.
In addition, the police stated, “Although Mr. B expressed that he does not want to press charges against Ms. A, special assault is not a crime that can be dismissed against the victim’s will, so we plan to continue the investigation.”
Previously, on the 22nd, a YouTuber who abused her pet dog during a livestream was investigated by the police.
According to animal protection organizations like ‘Catch Dog,’ the police began investigating YouTuber C who is accused of animal abuse. C is accused of hitting her pet dog with a Shinai during a live stream at her home on the 19th.
The scene of abuse was captured in the video. C hit various parts of the dog’s body with a Shinai. When the cameraman tried to stop the abuse, she said, “Be quiet. Shut up,” and continued the abuse.
After confirming the content of the live stream, ‘Catch Dog’ reported C to the police.
Police officers and local government officials who arrived at the scene separated the dog from C and rescued it immediately.
