The attackers, including Alexandre, kidnapped a 67-year-old woman at gunpoint outside of a local mall in October. The attackers, then used her credit cards — and charged an alleged about of $1,400 in charges.

The law enforcement authorities were not able to capture the soccer player until they received a tip that he was a player on the team.
