Family Of Tottenham Footballer Jan Vertonghen Attacked And Held At Knifepoint By Burglars

The family of Tottenham footballer Jan Vertonghen were attacked and held at knifepoint by burglars while the Belgian star was away with his teammates playing the Champions league last 16 second leg with RB Leipzig at Germany last week.

According to London police four men wearing balaclavas broke into Vertonghen’s home in London while his wife Sophie de Vries and two children were at home. The men brandished knifes at the fear stricken family members before stealing things from the home.

“We have been supporting Jan and his family through this terribly traumatic time,” a Spurs spokesperson told CNN Monday.

“We encourage anyone who has any information to come forward to help the police with their investigation.” 

A police spokesman told CNN on Monday: “Police were called to a residential address in London NW3 at 7.49pm (19.49 GMT) on 10 March to a report of a burglary.

“Officers attended. It was reported four men wearing balaclavas, armed with knives, had forced entry to the property and stolen a number of items before leaving.

“Nobody was injured. The suspects had left the scene before officers arrived. There have been no arrests and inquiries continue.”
