The robbery occurred on the same night as PSG team-mate Angel Di Maria’s home was the subject of a ‘violent robbery’ with the player’s wife and children inside.

During the horrific ordeal, Marquinhos’ father Marcos Barros Correa, 52, is claimed to have been ‘battered in the face, chest and ribs’.

The crooks – who are believed to have mistaken the home for Marquinhos’ own property – made off with £1,300 in cash and a number of luxury handbags.

But now, four men aged 17, 20, 28 and 29 have been arrested following an investigation it has been confirmed.

Shortly after the violent robbery, Marquinhos took to Instagram to reassure his followers his family were safe and well.

The Brazilian wrote: “No one has suffered and everyone is fine. More fear than harm.”

Marquinhos’ wife Carol Cabrino added: “The house of Marquinhos’ parents was burgled while his family was inside.

“But no one suffered and everyone is OK and recovering from the shock.”

On the same night, ex-Manchester United star Di Maria’s home was burgled, with the player informed DURING the game, quickly subbed off by boss Mauricio Pochettino as the winger raced home to be with his family.

In heartbreaking scenes, Di Maria was spotted leaving the stadium in tears.

Initial reports claimed his family were being held hostage.

Thankfully, it later emerged Di Maria’s wife and two daughters had been upstairs when the break-in occurred and only found out about it afterwards.

It is not yet known if the two robberies are linked.

Thiago Silva, Dani Alves and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting have also all had their properties burgled during their time at the Parc des Princes.

Mauro Icardi also had his home burgled in February while he was playing in the game away to Lorient.

And the most-recent spate of break-ins led to PSG paying for 24/7 security at their stars’ homes to provide protection and, crucially, peace of mind.
