Bournemouth's Jordon Ibe was robbed at knifepoint after thieves rammed his car in south-east London two weeks ago.

The Guardian report that the forward, who moved to Dean Court this summer from Liverpool, had his watch stolen after thieves crashed into his car in Surrey Quays.

The attack, which took place near Surrey Quays Underground station at around 1.45pm on November 6th, is now being investigated by Scotland Yard.

"One of the suspects threatened the victim with a knife before stealing his watch," a Met Police spokesman said. "The victim was not injured.

"At this early stage, officers are investigating whether the suspects intentionally collided with the victim’s car."

The incident came just a week after an alleged attempted robbery on West Ham striker Andy Carroll whilst driving home from a training session on November 2nd.

Jordan Ibe did not feature for Bournemouth's 1-0 victory over Stoke City on Saturday afternoon through "illness".
