07 December 2022

Police are investigating a second burglary in the village where England footballer Raheem Sterling lives.

Jewellery reported to be worth £300,000 was stolen from the player’s home in Oxshott, Surrey, in a burglary at the weekend.

It is thought Sterling’s fiancee, Paige Milian, returned to the couple’s home to discover that there had been a break-in.

Surrey Police said detectives are investigating whether there are links between the raid and a second attempted burglary at another home in the village on Tuesday.

The force said in a statement: “Two men were arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary last night (December 6) in the Oxshott area. They are currently in custody.

“Following reports of suspicious activity around 6.40pm, a number of resources were deployed, including the dog unit and the police helicopter.

“Our colleagues from British Transport Police also provided assistance.

“Inquiries remain ongoing to establish whether there are any links between these arrests and the break-in reported to us over the weekend.”

Sterling returned home to the UK from the World Cup in Qatar after being told about the break-in.

The Chelsea winger is said to have been shaken and concerned about the wellbeing of his children following the incident.

Messages of support for Sterling flooded in on social media, with Match Of The Day presenter Gary Lineker offering the family his sympathy over their “awful and harrowing ordeal”.

It is understood the FA offered extensive security guidance to players before leaving for Qatar, with an experienced security team on hand to advise and provide support when needed.

The Sun reported that a guard provided by Chelsea FC was stationed at Sterling’s home, and that the 27-year-old plans to beef up security.
