Arsenal star Gabriel Magalhaes was involved in a scary moment after masked thugs attempted to rob after a night out with a friend.
The thugs are said to have followed Magalhaes home, with one of them who wielded a baseball bat attempting to steal the defenders £45,000 Mercedes.
According to Daily Mail, the two aggressors demanded the Brazilian's car keys, mobile phone, and watch.
The publication further revealed one of the attackers who was identified as Abderaham Muse lunged at the defender with the bat, but Gabriel managed to wrestle with him before the robber wriggled free and took off.
The incident is understood to have taken place in August, with Muse being handed a five-year jail term after police linked him with the robbery via DNA from a hat that fell off during the scuffle with Gabriel.
It was later established that Muse, who is originally from Tottenham has a string of convictions, with some dating back to 2009.
This was not the first time an Arsenal player was getting involved in a scuffle with a thug.
Back in July 2019, Sead Kolasinac fought off two armed men who attempted to rob him and then-teammate Mesut Ozil.
The incident happened outside their home in Hampstead, with those involved being jailed later that year.
Meanwhile, Gabriel, who has been in good shape since joining the Gunners from Lille will be hoping to form the starting XI when his side takes on rivals Man United on Thursday, December 2.
