Detectives investigating an armed robbery at the Kensal rise home of former England footballer Ian Wright have arrested three men.
Officers held the suspects on suspicion of robbery after four masked men stormed the ex-Arsenal striker’s home on June 18.
The 50-year-old pundit was away in Brazil commenting on the World Cup when the raiders threatened his 39-year-old wife, Nancy Hallam, with a knife at around 9.20pm.
The couple’s two young children were asleep in a separate room.
After hearing the news Mr Wright flew back from South America but later returned.
