Reports state that early on Tuesday morning, burglars attacked custodian Alexandre Letellier of Paris Saint-Germain and his small family.

According to a French outlet, RMC, Letellier, his wife, and their two children, who are two and six years old, were abducted and kept at knifepoint. Letellier’s wife, Chloe, has been alleged to have been struck in the face by the attackers while they demanded money and jewellery.

Luckily for the scared family, after the incident at their home in Yvelines, northern France, police officers were able to step in quickly. The report also states that authorities detained three of the four intruders.

Letellier, 33, and his spouse, Chloe, are reported to have woken up at around two in the morning on Tuesday due to a triggered security alarm at their residence. When the police were called, the attackers had already entered the garden. Three intruders were apprehended and taken into police custody, but one officer was injured in the knee while on the scene.

The third-choice custodian for PSG, Letellier, is French and has not yet played for the Ligue 1 winners in 2023–2024. Since coming to the team on a free transfer from Orleans in the summer of 2020, the 33-year-old has only appeared in two games.

On the last day of the previous season, Letellier was substituted for ten minutes as the French powerhouses unexpectedly lost 3-2 at home to bottom-of-the-table Clermont Foot. During PSG’s 5-0 victory over Metz on the last day of the previous campaign, the Paris-born custodian was assigned the same role.

Letellier started his career with the Paris club and played for PSG’s B team for 14 games before spending ten years with Angers. During his ten-year tenure, he played 36 games for the reserve team and made 47 appearances on the first team. Before spending a brief time with Orleans, he had loan spells with Young Boys of Switzerland, Troyes of France, and Sarpsborg of Norway.
