Prem aces’ bros rob­bery terror

Daily Star - - FRONT PAGE - By ALEXAN­DER BROWN [email protected]

THE older broth­ers of Eng­land aces Mar­cus Rash­ford and Trent Alexan­der Arnold were beaten up and robbed at gun­point as they ate their break­fast.

Rash­ford’s brother Dane, 26, and Alexan­der-Arnold’s sib­ling Tyler,

24, were at­tacked at the Lit­tle Rock Caribbean café in Moss Side, Manch­ester.

The pair, along with a third friend, were en­joy­ing break­fast at about

10.30am on Satur­day when a vi­cious gang bran­dish­ing a shot­gun, ma­chete and baseball bat burst in.

They were left bruised and blood­ied be­fore be­ing rushed to Manch­ester Royal In­fir­mary. Last night their in­juries were not be­lieved to be se­ri­ous.

Liver­pool full-back Alexan­derArnold’s brother had his Range Rover and his wal­let taken, while Dane’s watch was also nabbed.

Restau­rant owner Sa­muel Fran­cis said last night: “They’re reg­u­lar guests and I think they were tar­geted de­lib­er­ately.”

Po­lice said six peo­ple have been ar­rested in con­nec­tion with the or­deal, aged be­tween 17 and 58. Two guns were also seized by de­tec­tives.

The set-upon group had been on their way to watch Liver­pool’s vic­tory over Brighton. They had stopped off at the eatery in Princess Road when they were at­tacked. Tyler’s Range Rover was later re­cov­ered in nearby Fal­low­field.

The pair man­age their broth­ers’ busi­ness in­ter­ests.

Dane’s girl­friend is In­sta­gram model Lau­ryn Good­man, 27, who posted a mes­sage to her 55,000 fol­low­ers on In­sta­gram which said: “To­day was a re­al­ity check, the world can be so cruel. Be grate­ful for ev­ery sec­ond of ev­ery day that you get to spend with the peo­ple you love. Life is so very pre­cious.”

Supt Mark Dex­ter said: “Thank­fully no-one was se­ri­ously in­jured but the vic­tims have been left un­der­stand­ably shaken.

“We are par­tic­u­larly keen to hear from any­one who saw what hap­pened or any­one with dash­cam footage.”
