Robbers flee after realizing they’ve broken into Dolph Lundgren’s house
Armed robbers got a surprise when they broke into a house near Marbella, Spain, tied up a woman who was inside and then realized that they had broken into the home of actor Dolph Lundgren.
According to the Daily Mail, the burglars terrorized the actor’s wife into handing over cash and jewelry by threatening her with knives.
But after spotting a family portrait of the ‘tough guy’ and his children in one of the bedrooms, the thieves immediately fled.
Luckily for the intruders, Lundgren—a 6ft 5in black belt in karate– was out.
Police are still hunting the house breakers.
The Swede, who starred in Rocky IV in 1985 as the imposing Russian boxer Ivan Drago, still has a fighting figure at age 51 from training up to six days a week in his local gym.
He recently participated in a six-round boxing exhibition match with Russian mixed martial artist Oleg Taktarov in Moscow.
Lundgren portrayed He-Man in the 1987 film Masters of the Universe, and in the early 1990s, appeared in films such as Showdown in Little Tokyo (1991), opposite Brandon Lee, Universal Soldier (1992), opposite Jean-Claude Van Damme, Joshua Tree opposite Kristian Alfonso and George Segal, and Johnny Mnemonic alongside Keanu Reeves.
