Professional Brazilian footballer, Neymar Junior, had big scare on Tuesday, November 7, as the house of Bruna Biancardi, the mother of his newborn daughter Maive, was invaded and robbed by a criminal gang in Cotia, in the state of Sao Paulo in Brazil.
According to the R7 newspaper, Biancardi’s parents were on the scene at the time of the robbery and were tied up but were not injured, a sports website, Marca, reports Tuesday.
The Municipal Civil Guard said one of the suspects, who has already been arrested, is a resident of the condominium where the Biancardi family had a house and would have allowed the other criminals to enter.
Two of the suspects were armed and were looking for Bruna and Mavie, the daughter of star striker Neymar. Both were not at the residence at the time of the invasion.
Neighbours called the authorities after noticing that something strange was going on in the house. The agents surrounded the property and managed to arrest one suspect, who was a resident of the condominium. The others fled with luxury handbags, watches, and jewellery.
Neymar has not yet made a statement about the incident.
