Ian Wright offers reward to catch knifepoint robbers

REWARD: Ian Wright

IAN WRIGHT has offered a reward for any information leading to the conviction of those responsible for the knifepoint burglary at his home.

Before flying back to Brazil, where he has been a pundit for the World Cup, the Arsenal legend thanked the public for their outpouring of support and revealed plans to reward those willing to come forward with information.

"Thank you everyone for your kind words of support. There will be a reward for any information leading to arrests. Justice will be done," he said.

Wright, whose wife was threatened with a knife during the robbery, condemned those responsible, calling them “kids with no respect for anything or anyone, very angry young people”.

The terrifying attack took place on Wednesday night (June 18) at the star's northwest London home while his wife and two daughters slept forcing the 50-year-old to return home from Brazil. While nobody was injured, the four masked men took off with personal possession including Arsenal memorabilia and rare watches.

The England legend has since returned to Brazil, where he will resume his role as a World Cup commentator.

Showing he was undeterred by the events of last week he shared a series of tweets including a meme of Lion King character Rafiki that featured a message about forgiveness.

DCI Mick Gornall, who is leading the investigation, said: “We are trying to trace these four men, and I’d ask anyone who may know anything to get in touch with my team and help us.

The suspects are black, aged between 18-25, and were wearing dark clothing and hoodies obscuring their faces.
Any witnesses or anyone with any information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
