LONDON: Armed men raided the home of
Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher while the player
was away in Italy, threatening his fiancee with a knife and
stealing jewellery.
Three men kicked open the front door of Fletcher's home in
the Manchester suburb of Bowdon on Monday evening and forced the
woman to hand over her engagement ring, police sources said.
One of the attackers then held a knife to her throat,
demanding that she hand over more valuables. Her mother was also
threatened at knifepoint before the victims handed over more
Fletcher, a Scottish international, was in Italy for
Manchester United's Champions League match with Inter Milan on
Tuesday evening.
The raid follows a series of break-ins at the homes of
Liverpool players in recent months while they have been away
playing high-profile matches.
"This was a terrifying attack for the victims who were at
home," said Sergeant Phil Seeley of Greater Manchester Police.
