Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli held at knifepoint during a burglary
Tottenham and England midfielder Dele Alli was held at knifepoint during a burglary in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Two men broke into the 24-year-old’s house in north London, where he is spending lockdown with his brother and their respective partners. Alli was threatened and punched during the incident and suffered minor facial injuries in a scuffle.
The intruders stole items of jewelry including watches. Alli has handed CCTV footage to the police.”Thank you for all the messages. Horrible experience but we’re all okay now. Appreciate the support,” Alli tweeted on Wednesday night.
A Metropolitan Police statement said: “Police were called at approximately 00:35 BST on Wednesday 13 May to reports of a robbery at a residential address.
“Two males gained entry to the property and stole items of jewelry, including watches, before fleeing.
“Two male occupants at the property suffered minor facial injuries after being assaulted. They did not require hospital treatment.
“There have been no arrests. Inquiries into the circumstances continue.”
In March, the family of Alli’s Spurs team-mate Jan Vertonghen was robbed at knifepoint while he was away on Champions League duty.
