Gabriel and a friend saw off three men, including one with a baseball bat.
Arteta said: "Obviously it is not a nice thing to go through when you have family involved and they are trying to access your house.
"Gabi showed a lot of character. You see the reaction he had straight away. Credit to the boy and after that he was fine.
"Obviously he was shocked and there were a few things he wanted to change in his life to prevent those things happening and the club gave him all the support that was needed to forget about the situation, learn from it and move on."
