It was reported that a police officer spotted the thief and pulled out his pistol to open fire on them, and Royal escaped unharmed.
29 gunmen were reportedly fired at the attacker, one of whom hit them in the back and they were taken to a nearby hospital.
A watch and a Spurs star were taken from the scene but he recovered from the shooting. He is said to be “deeply saddened” by the incident.
However, he was able to go to the local police station with his father and his superior to write a report.
Royal was out with a party with his family and friends at The New Trips nightclub when the attacker approached him.
‘I was celebrating and when I came out, it all happened, which was very bad,’ the actor’s father told Globo Esporte. ‘A really scary scene. I do not wish that to anyone.
‘[The policeman] left, as usual, and Royal went to the car and when he saw that there was a criminal and the robber pointed a gun at Emerson, when the robber was interrupted, the officer started firing at him. .
‘There were five or six people with him. Everyone went running in the opposite direction, because they did not know where the gun was coming from. ‘
Royal is currently on holiday returning to his home country after his first Tottenham campaign. The defender moved to North London from Barcelona for £ 25.8million last summer and appeared 41 times in all competitions as Spurs qualify for the Champions League next season.
