Dele Alli robbed and held at knifepoint

Dele Alli, Tottenham midfielder, was robbed at knifepoint after burglars broke into his home in North London in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

 

It was reported that Dele Alli was with four other people in his house - including his brother, Harry Hickford, and their girlfriends.

 

The Tottenham star was hit in the face by the thieves, who took various of expensive jewellery and other items.


 

The Police reported that two of the male residents were assaulted during the robbery, but no one is hurt seriously.


 


The 24-year-old player posted on Twitter: “Thank you for all the messages.”

 

"Horrible experience but we're all okay now. Appreciate the support."

 

Police said that no arrests have been made yet, but they are investigating the accident and are currently reviewing the CCTV footage.


 


“Police were called at approximately 00:35hrs on Wednesday, 13 May to reports of a robbery at a residential address Barnet,” said the police spokesman.

 

“Two males gained entry to the property and stole items of jewellery, including watches, before fleeing.

 

“One male occupant of the property, aged in his 20s, suffered a minor facial injury after being assaulted. He did not require hospital treatment.

 

“No arrests; enquiries into the circumstances continue.”

 

Tottenham Hotspur have offered Alli their support.


 


The burglary comes two months after Jan Vertonghen's family was robbed by armed man in their North London home.

 

The thieves were armed with knives, but by the time they were robbing Vertonghen's house, the Belgian was in Germany for Spurs' Champions League match against RB Leipzig in March.


However, Dele Alli is expected to return to training with the team as the club is preparing for the Premier League return, which at this point is scheduled for June 12.
