Arsenal star Gabriel fights off baseball bat wielding carjackers

Premier League footballer Gabriel fought off two carjackers, one of whom was wielding a baseball bat, in London earlier this year.

The incident was recorded on CCTV in footage released by London police on Tuesday.

The carjackers followed the Brazilian home and attempted to steal his car, phone and keys as he exited the car.

Gabriel, who plays for Arsenal, can be seen scuffling with one of the carjackers, removing his hat in the process, before the thief is seen fleeing from the garage.

One of the alleged carjackers Abderaham Muse was later arrested from DNA within his hat linking him to the crime.
