Thieves asked for car keys, cell phone and watch – Gabriel offered only punches

Arsenal member Gabriel Magalhaes was confronted by a gang of thieves who tried to steal Mercedes from his garage.

The Brazilian was chased to the house one night by two robbers, one of whom was holding a baseball bat.

The two thugs waited until Gabriel got out of his vehicle and then demanded that he hand over the car keys, cell phone and watch.

Gabriel was initially forced to comply with the demands, but then responded.

When a thief tried to attack him, the quarterback responded by hitting him in the face and grabbing his hat.

The thief managed to get away from Gabriel’s response before leaving the garage and leaving the house along with the other two accomplices.

The incident happened in August, while CCTV camera footage captured the moment.

A 26-year-old man, Abderaham Muse, will be in prison for five years, last month after police caught him with DNA from his hat that fell on him.
