Marcus Rashford and Trent Alexander-Arnold's brothers beaten up and 'attacked at gunpoint' in restaurant
Marcus Rashford’s brother Dane and Trent Alexander-Arnold’s sibling Tyler were both attacked as they ate breakfast in Manchester on Saturday morning.
The pair were left bloodied and bruised and were taken to the Royal Infirmary Hospital, reports MailOnline.
Dane, 26, had his watch stolen while Tyler’s wallet and Range Rover were both taken after the yobs took his keys.
Both men work with their brothers and manage their business interests off the field.
A police source told the website that a third person, friends with the pair, was also injured following the attack inside the Caribbean restaurant.
All three of the men were on their way to the South Coast to watch Trent play in Liverpool's game against Brighton.
The violent gang was armed with a shotgun, baseball bat and machete and ambushed the trio when they sat down inside the Little Rock diner.
Cops believe the men were using a white BMW 3 series to carry out the raid.
A source told MailOnline: “Thankfully they are all going to be OK. They were terrified as the men had a gun. It was a shocking incident.
“They had only stopped at the last minute for some food. You would expect something like this to happen in the dead of night and not at such an early time of the day.”
Cops have arrested four people – aged between 18 and 58 – for questioning in connection with the incident.
They also arrested two 17-year-old boys on suspicion of robbery.
Marcus and Trent were told about the robbery and as to why their brothers were not at last night's match and why they are missing from Manchester United's match against Tottenham at Wembley this afternoon.
Superintendent Mark Dexter of Greater Manchester police said: “Thankfully no one was seriously injured but the victims have been left understandably shaken following this incident.
“It is thanks to the swift action of our officers that we now have six men in custody but this investigation is still very much ongoing and officers will be in the area today continuing with inquiries.
“We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who saw what happened or anyone with dashcam footage of the BMW or Range Rover around the time of the incident.”
