Twitch streamer Kylee Carter, known as justfoxxi, recently opened up on YouTube about an incident in which an alleged stalker set her car on fire while she was away.
The incident took place on May 16, but Carter, who has 593,000 followers on Twitch, remained quiet about it until she uploaded Tuesday's video, though the footage was filmed a week earlier. She provided security footage from her Nest camera showing a man wearing a mask setting fire to her Jaguar F-Type coupe by placing a brick in the center of her hood and bucket on top of it, dropping a lit match inside it, and igniting the flame.
The man in the video was identified as 28-year-old Farhan Jami, who drove 700 miles from New York to her home in Ohio to commit an act of arson on her property. A local Fox affiliate reported earlier this month that Carter's mother, who was inside the house with some animals at the time, called 911 at 2:26 a.m. local time and police and firefighters arrived on the scene, where the fire had spread to the fence. She told police that her daughter has had stalkers because she's a popular video game streamer, therefore a stalker could've started the fire.
Police found Jami in the area and arrested him shortly afterward. According to Polygon, he is awaiting a grand jury trial for felony aggravated assault.
"We're all traumatized in ways that I will never be able to describe but I'm just glad that everyone is safe. That's the most important thing to me," said Carter. "I never thought that when I started streaming back in 2015 that something like this would ever happen to me."
Carter usually plays games like Fortnite while talking to her viewers in chat but she said her streaming activity had ground to a halt since the arson incident. However, she said towards the end of the video that she would get back to streaming again soon.
