Spanish pop star Miguel Bosé said on Monday that 10 armed assailants burst into his house in Mexico City and tied him up, his two children and household staff for more than two hours while they ransacked the premises.

Bosé wrote in his Instagram account that he and his children were okay following the Friday home-invasion robbery. But he described the ordeal as “very tense, uneasy, and unpleasant.” Bosé said the assailants took his car and other possessions before leaving.

He added that he was not thinking of leaving Mexico because of the crime.

Neither city police nor prosecutors immediately responded to requests on Monday for comment on the report.

It was one of two violent events in Mexico City involving foreigners over the weekend.

On Saturday, thieves on a motorcycle shot to death a man from India on an expressway, apparently to steal $10,000 he had changed at a money exchange at the Mexico City international airport.
