i am surprised at this. sometimes in the past when the youths realise who it is they normally let them go (think this happened to ronaldo in the past but i could be wrong).  but these youths like they ent have no respect.

Gang robbed football legend Pele
By Gary Duffy
BBC News, Sao Paulo

ormer Brazilian football star Pele has been robbed by an armed gang while on his way to his seaside home.

As many as 10 people were reported to have been involved in the robbery, but Pele was unhurt in the incident.

He was on his way from the city of Sao Paulo to a house he owns on the coast when the robbery happened at the entrance of a tunnel.

The robbery took place earlier this month, but details have only just emerged.

Police say there is frequent traffic congestion in the area, and that gangs from a nearby favela (shanty town) often take advantage of this to stage robberies.

Robberies common

According to the newspaper Estado de Sao Paulo, Pele's car was surrounded by 10 armed men who took his gold necklace, a mobile phone and a watch.

Pele was in the passenger seat of his car. According to his spokesman, when the gang recognised the former player they gave the driver back some items they had taken from him.

The former Brazilian football star was not so lucky, as the gang then decided to flee on foot with his valuables.

Pele, who is said to have remained calm during the robbery, apparently believed the men were high on drugs.

The local police say they were not informed about the incident.

Robberies of cars stopped at traffic lights or in congestion are not uncommon in Brazil, and many wealthy families have resorted to buying bullet-proof cars as a form of protection.

The marginal youths all over the world don't know about their heroes. The same thing might have happen with Bob Marley in Kingston. Lucky Dube got killed by young bandits when went to drop off his kids somewhere in Jo'burg(correct me).

IS it possible that Pele did not report the crime because the culprits have already been taken care of?

You all have to realise back in de days, when I was a lil kid, de people wud think like dat, cuz dey some ah dem will rob yuh yuh tuh eat. De big difference now is dat people robbing tuh get some crack, etc. I does volunteer meh time wid ah group of people helping de Homeless people in Florida, and out of every ten people dat I interviewed and get some in about what caused them to be homeless. Yuh know what, 8 out of 10 people will tell me crack cocaine, etc. Sadly these people doh have no control over what dey do, trust meh, dey don't. A couple people, have gone so far to tell me dat dey pulled aa gun on on of their family (mother,Father, etc) not because dey dislike dey parents or relative, but because de devil inside of dem is telling dem have to get it by all means necessary   :(. HIGHLY BLESSED.
