A man playing the video game Fortnite has been charged with assaulting his partner after the alleged incident was watched by other gamers during a livestream.

A Fortnite player has been charged over the alleged assault of his partner.

"Can you not? I said I'll be out soon", the man said, before leaving his seat. The streamer is then seen to disappear off camera before the sound of a slap and his crying wife can be heard.

"Officers from Camden Police Area Command were contacted after a witness reported the alleged assault of a 21-year-old woman, believed to have been livestreamed about 8.30pm (Sunday 9 December 2018)".

In a video shared on YouTube of the incident, it appears that the woman is throwing things in the run up to the events in the Twitter clips.

"You f--ing woman basher", the woman responds.

"Don't hit me in the face, don't you dare touch my face. He just hit me in the face".

"F*** off you dog, you don't pay the f***ing bills", he said.

When the man gets up again, more screams are heard from off camera from both a woman and a child, who yells, "Daddy, daddy!"

The man was taken to Narellan Police Station where he was charged with common assault. He has been granted conditional bail, and is expected to appear in court on Thursday.

"While the woman was not seriously injured she was distressed and shaken by the incident". You can also call the Domestic Violence Hotline on 1800 656 463.

Thankfully Twitch and Twitter have come down on the streamer hard - banning his accounts and sending a message to all users about this kind of unacceptable behaviour.

"Two girls, aged three and 20 months, were at home at the time", the NSW Police's post continues.
