Theft robbery

Arsenal Star Attacked By Robbers At Home

Arsenal defender Gabriel Magalhaese, who joined the club from Lille last year, was assaulted by a thief with a bat at his house in Barnet, north London. Magalhaese was injured in the incident.

An image from surveillance camera video made public by the Metropolitan Police shows Gabriel successfully battling off hooded robbers who had tracked him down and attempted to take his Mercedes and watch.

Upon returning home with his companion, Rodrigo Tavares, following a night out, the thieves decided to follow them and demanded the vehicle keys and cell phone from the young guy.

As seen in the footage, Gabriel gets out of his vehicle and raises his hands in the air before handing up his watch and car keys to the thief.

During the fleeing of the thieves, the Brazilian was given the opportunity to strike one of them, who was swinging a baseball bat towards his face, and grapple him until the assailant was able to break free and flee with his partner.
