Pierre-Emerrick Aubameyang was a victim of armed robbery after he and his wife were ambushed by robbers at their own home in Barcelona.
According to police report, a group of masked men sneaked into the player's premises in the early hours of the morning. Aubameyang and his wife Alysha were threatened with firearms and iron bars and Aubameyang beaten by the robbers. The robbers gained access to a safe in the home and made away with several jewels.
Police are currently conducting investigations with this being the second time the player was the target of a robbery in Barcelona. Fortunately, neither he nor his family were at home during the first occurrence. The attack comes a few days after his team mate Robert Lewandowski was also robbed of his £59,000 watch when he stopped to meet fans on his way to Camp Nou for training. Luckily, the culprit was caught and the watch returned.
With the wages, lifestyles and even homes of football players being in the public domain, many players have become targets of robberies. Some players who have fallen victim are Gérard Pique, Karim Benzema, Thomas Partey and Casemiro among others.
Aubameyang joined Barcelona on a free transfer in January after the termination of his Arsenal contract after a series of disciplinary breaches. The 33-year-old has since scored 13 goals in 24 appearances for Barcelona. However, he is expected to make a move away from the club with Chelsea being one of the interested parties.
