UK: Footage released of attempted robbery on Arsenal stars Sead Kolasinac and Mesut Ozil

United Kingdom, Hampstead
November 06, 2019 at 20:02 GMT +00:00 · Published

26-year-old Jordan Northover reportedly pleaded guilty on Wednesday as the second robber of the attempted assault on Arsenal stars Sead Kolasinac and Mesut Ozil for their £200,000 watches that took place in Hampstead on July 25.

New footage released by the Metropolitan Police on Wednesday shows Kolasinac fighting off the two knife-armed burglars during the attempted robbery.

Two men wearing helmets and dark clothing are seen driving over a sidewalk with a scooter, while Kolasinac stood by Ozil's Mercedes G parked on the road. While one burglar stepped out of the motorcycle holding a bag, the other one took out a knife and pointed at the victim.

The first assailant stepped on the bike again, while his partner pushing the knife towards Kolasinac. The footballer is seen reacting and fighting back with the criminal. A woman, who was inside the vehicle, closes the door while Kolasinac seems to chase the robbers.

According to reports, Ashley Smith, 30, had already admitted his part in the crime in October and is scheduled to be sentenced on Friday. Northover's trial date is still to be decided.
