Pele Robbed In Brazil
Local reports out of San Paulo, Brazil are saying that soccer legend Pele was robbed in the Brazilian city of Santos.
Pele was sitting in the passenger seat of a car near the city slum when at least 10 young men armed with pistols and knives stopped the car.
Pele was robbed of a gold necklace, his cell phone, and a watch.
The robbery occurred on June 13th, but has only been made public now, because Pele did not report the incident to the police.
I hope that the boys didn't recognize who Pele was. This incident is like if Michael Jordan was stopped in the ghetto of Chicago and robbed.
This just goes to show you that no matter who you are, if you look wealthy and are in a desperate area, you can get robbed.
