Former Zamalek midfielder Rahim Ayew has suffered a gun-shot injury in his arm as armed attackers ransacked his residence in Accra on Wednesday, according to Ghanasoccernet.com.

The eldest son of Ghana legend Abedi Pele could not prevent an armed robbery, with hooded assailants raiding his home at gunpoint - injuring the Asante Kotoko midfielder in his right arm.

“Rahim heard a knock on his door and peeped through the window. He saw the robbers with pump action gun and refused to allow them in. But the thieves broke his door and proceeded to raid his home,” a source told GHANASoccernet.com.

According to the Ghanaian website, the East Legon police have launched an investigation into the incident. Updates of the 26-year-old's health condition were not mentioned though.

Ayew did not enjoy the best of spells with Zamalek whom he joined from Ghanaian club Eleven Wise in the summer of the 2009-10 season.

He could only manage no more than 10 appearances for the Cairo side, where he scored just a single goal before departing in January 2011 for Belgian side Lierse.
