Arsenal football star, Sead Kolasinac is being hailed online for his bravery after he fought off knife-wielding moped thugs with his bare hands during a carjacking attack in London.

Kolasinac was with his teammate Mesut Ozil when they were attacked by the thugs who attempted to steal the vehicle they were driving in this afternoon July 25th.

Ozil was said to be racing along North London’s Golders Green Road in his black Mercedes G-Class SUV while being pursued by two thugs on a moped.

In the video, his teammate and Bosnian international Kolasinac is seen coming out from the vehicle and going after the armed gangsters with his bare hands.

It was later revealed that Ozil abandoned his car in the middle of the road and fled on foot into the Turkish restaurant Likya. Waiters and chefs at the restaurant reportedly ran to his defence and also took to the street to chase away the attackers before Police arrived at the scene.

Narrating the ordeal, Financial worker Azuka Alintah, 36, who lives nearby, said he was out shopping for food when he noticed the commotion.

It was totally mad and strange,’ he told MailOnline. ‘His car was standing there empty in the middle of the road with its door hanging open. It is very distinctive, with gold trim.

‘Ozil looked absolutely terrified, as anybody would after being chased by men with knives. He looked like he was running for his life. And I suppose he was.

‘I saw him disappear into the restaurant with the motorcycle guys on his tail. They didn’t take off their helmets and were all in black, wearing long-sleeved tops in this hot weather. They stood out. It was really creepy.

‘God knows what would have happened if they’d caught him. It looked to me like he’d have been hacked to shreds and he clearly thought so too.

‘As soon as the restaurant staff started to come to the window and to the doorway, they turned around and roared off. The police were there shortly afterwards and the road was almost blocked off.’

He added: ‘It was totally surreal, just surreal and strange. You don’t expect something like that to happen at any time, particularly the mid-afternoon.’

The manager of the restaurant confirmed the incident but said he had no comment to make.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said today: ‘Police were called to Platts Lane, NW3, shortly before 5 pm on Thursday, July 25 to reports of an attempted robbery.

‘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. There have been no arrests. Enquiries continue.’
