Former Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverly was robbed at his house on Friday, October 2. According to a report by the UK Sun, the midfielder who now plays for Everton was threatened with baseball bats by the robbers who gained entrance to their Manchester mansion.
Cleverley was with his young family-his wife and their two-year-old daughter- when the robbery incident happened.
Jewellery and handbacks of Cleverley’s wife Georgina Dorsett were stolen as well as two £50,000 Range Rovers. A £15,000 Carter bracelet, a £10,000 Hermes Birkin handbag and an Audemars Piguet watch valued at £50,000 and the two cars were stolen.
The midfielder fortunately was unhurt after the robbery though his wife was very well ‘shaken’ after the robbers threatened them with baseball bats.
“Tom and Georgina weren’t physically hurt but it was a horrific ordeal for them – especially as their little girl was with them. The only thing in their minds was protecting her,” the UK Sun sources revealed.
The Greater Manchester Police told the newspaper that they are investigating the raid.
“Officers attended and discovered a man, a woman and an infant who had been the victims of an aggravated burglary,” a spokesman for the Greater Manchester United police is quoted to say by Daily Mail.
“None of the victims were injured. An investigation was subsequently launched and is on-going.”
