Ozil and Arsenal team-mate Kolasinac were the viictiims of an a.ttacke.d by kn.ife-wiel.ding moped th.ugs in London today.
German World Cup winner Ozil was seen racing down Golders Green Road in his black Mercedes G-Class SUV as two th.ugs on mopeds chased him.
Kolasinac is then seen leaping from the £100,000 vehicle and figh.ting off the arm.ed ro.bbers with his bare hands.
Ozil then abandoned his car and fled the road on foot, taking refuge in nearby Turkish restaurant Likya.
Staff immediately rushed to his defence, piling out onto the street to help chase away the attack.ers.
Police arrived on the scene sharpish, and they were spotted questioning the Gunners forward on the pavement over the shoc.king incid.ent by bysta.nders.
Financial worker Azuka Alintah, 36, was out food shopping when she witnessed the horri.fying event.
He told the Daily Mail: “It was totally mad and strange. His car was standing there empty in the middle of the road with its door hanging open. It is very dis.tinctive, with gold trim.
“Ozil looked absolutely terrified, as anybody would after being chased by men with kn.ives. He looked like he was running for his life. And I suppose he was.
“I saw him disappear into the restaurant with the motorcycle guys on his tail. They didn’t take off their helmets and were all in black, wearing long sleeved tops in this hot weather. They stood out. It was really creepy.
“God knows what would have happened if they’d caught him. It looked to me like he’d have been hack.ed to shreds and he clearly thought so too.”
The eye witness added: “As soon as the restaurant staff started to come to the window and to the doorway, they turned around and roared off. The po.lice were there shortly afterwards and the road was almost blocked off.’
“It was totally surreal, just surreal and strange. You don’t expect something like that to happen at any time, particularly the mid-afternoon.”
