Barcelona forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was allegedly the victim of an armed robbery at his home in the early hours of Monday morning with a police investigation underway

FOOTIE star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was beaten up and robbed by four armed men yesterday in a terrifying raid on his home.

The raiders broke in through the garden and then threatened the ex-Arsenal striker, 33, and his wife Alysha Behague with guns and iron bars.

The couple were reportedly handcuffed and tied up — with Auba smashed on the chin with a bar and Alysha hit over the head.

They were made to lie on the floor for an hour in front of their kids, Curtys, 11, and Pierre, six, it was said.

Alysha, 36, was forced to open a safe full of valuables including jewellery, which the thugs snatched.

They fled from Barcelona ace Aubameyang’s pad in a white Audi A3.

Alysha reported the raid in the Castelldefels region of Catalonia, and police are investigating.

The burglary happened at around 1am — just hours after Aubameyang was an unused substitute in his side’s 4-0 home win over Real Valladolid.

Neither he or Alysha were seriously injured. Both were said to be doing “OK” yesterday.

They apparently refused to go to hospital to avoid their children being scared further.

The gang was still on the loose.

Last week, crooks stole a £60,000 watch from Aubameyang’s teammate Robert Lewandowski car as he arrived for training.

Aubameyang’s home is 650ft from properties owned by former Barca heroes Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez — who use private security firms at their pads.

Gabon international Aubameyang left Arsenal on deadline day in January after being stripped of the captaincy, having fallen out of favour with boss Mikel Arteta.

He had signed for the Gunners in 2018 in a £56million deal from German side Borussia Dortmund, and went on to score 68 goals in 128 games.

Towards the end of his spell there, he was dropped for returning one day late from an authorised trip to collect his sick mum from France.

After leaving, he said his issues at the North London club were “only with” Arteta.
