Atletico Madrid striker’s family robbed at gunpoint

Over the weekend, Atletico Madrid striker Angel Correa and his family members were the targets of an armed robbery at their home in the capital, as per information from Spanish police reported by AFP.

Although there were no injuries, the 28-year-old forward and his relatives were confronted by four hooded individuals wielding at least one firearm around 9:00 PM (2000 GMT) on Saturday.

The criminals seized jewelry and money from the player at gunpoint before making their escape, according to Cope radio.

This incident adds Correa to the list of players in Spain who have been victims of robbery or burglary in recent years, including former Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema and Atletico’s Alvaro Morata.

Moreover, in October 2019, Spanish police and Europol revealed that a burglary ring targeting Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid footballers had been dismantled.
