A Premier League footballer has asked for an apology from police after being mistaken for a jewel thief.

Victor Anichebe, the Everton striker, and a friend were looking in a jeweller’s window in Knutsford, Cheshire when they were swooped on by police who thought they were casing the shop.

The 20-year-old forward’s friend was put in handcuffs after police believed the duo were possibly part of a gang of raiders responsible for robberies on exclusive King Street.
