David Ospina and his family have been left fearing for their safety after thieves raided their £16million home before stealing his luxury sports car, reports the Evening Standard.

Two men entered the house through a kitchen window and spent 10 minutes searching for the keys to a Mercedes AMG worth £100,000. The car was later found abandoned in Wembley after a police search, but the incident has left Ospina's wife shaken.

The Arsenal goalkeeper was on international duty with Colombia but his wife and children were present in the house when the two men entered. They went unnoticed, but his wife, Jesica Sterling, awoke to find the window open and a tap running, and, of course, the car was missing.

Unfortunately, Ospina became the latest victim of a crime wave sweeping across north London. Certain residential associations in the area have even hired private security after 30 Range Rovers were reported stolen in just ten days in August.

Ms Sterling, a model who has two young children with the Gunners shot-stopper, told the same report that she found the targeted nature of the crime strange.

She said: “It’s difficult at night. We think that everything was planned because they came to the house through the window and took about 10 minutes maximum and left with the keys. It was strange they didn’t look for anything else – just took the keys and went.”

Her cousin, Katheryne Gomez, was also staying at the house with her husband when the incident occurred, and explained what happened in detail.

Mrs Gomez said: “We were upstairs asleep then in the morning when Jesica came down she looked at the kitchen window and saw it was open. She was surprised and scared.

“Jesica came upstairs to wake us and when we came down we saw the car was missing.

“We called the police and they came and looked at everything. About two hours after they left they called saying they’d found the car. We had all the locks changed on the house the same day.

“We feel better now but in the night Jesica feels scared because she lives here with the babies and it’s the first time they’ve had this situation. We think they had been looking at the house in the days before. It was two guys. It’s happening a lot. It’s a horrible thing.”
