Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac were attacked by two men with knives at Platts Lane, in north-west London.

In the video, Kolasinac can be seen getting out of the car to confront the men who are seen attacking the Gunners player.

The footage also reveals Mesut Ozil getting into the car as he is trying to protect himself while the knife wielders are trying to fight with Kolasinac.

A witness, Azuka Alintah, told the Daily Mail(as reported by the Guardian) that Özil had subsequently spoken to police outside a nearby Turkish restaurant, from which staff had come to the players’ aid.

“Özil looked absolutely terrified, as anybody would after being chased by men with knives. He looked like he was running for his life.”

The Gunners also released a statement in which they assured the fans that both Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac were fine.

Arsenal said in a statement: “We have been in contact with both players and they are fine.”

While the police arrived at the scene in north-west London around 5 pm but till the final updates, there have been no arrests.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said(as reported by the BBC):

“It was reported that suspects on motorbikes had attempted to rob a man who was driving a car.

“The driver, along with his passenger, managed to get away unharmed and travelled to a restaurant in Golders Green, where they were spoken to by officers.”
