Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang robbed and beaten in his home by thieves

A group of armed bandits beat up Barcelona forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the early hours of Monday morning during a brutal robbery, according to reports in Spain.

A group of armed bandits beat up Barcelona forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the early hours of Monday morning during a brutal robbery, according to reports in Spain.

According to the Spanish newspaper El Pais, at least four men entered Aubameyang’s garden at his home in Castelldefels at around one in the morning while armed with guns and iron bars.

El Pais, who cited police sources, the guys assaulted Aubameyang and threatened his wife with firearms until they were able to unlock a safe, from which they seized “many valuables,” and then they fled in a white Audi.

It is unknown at this time if Aubameyang’s two sons, who he shares with wife Alysha, were there during the incident.

A few days before to the attack on Aubameyang, Robert Lewandowski, a teammate from Barcelona, had his $59,000 watch stolen when he stopped for fans on the way to practice.

Barcelona has a history of being a haven for street crime, as Telegraph Sport highlighted earlier this month. Between January and the end of May, 34,000 thefts—or around 225 per day—were registered in Barcelona, according to police statistics.

Aubameyang’s home was broken into as anxiety over his future in Spain increased as Chelsea neared an agreement to sign the former Arsenal captain.

Although it is unclear whether Chelsea will proceed with the acquisition, Telegraph Sport reported last week that there is optimism a deal for Aubameyang can be finalized before this week’s transfer deadline.

After his contract with Arsenal expired in January, Aubameyang left for Barcelona on a free transfer. After a string of disciplinary infractions, Mikel Arteta had stripped the striker of his captaincy and exiled him from the squad. Since then, the 33-year-old has scored 13 goals in 24 games for Barcelona.
