Florida police issued arrest warrants for two NFL cornerbacks accused of an armed robbery alleged to have occurred Wednesday.
Deandre Baker of the New York Giants and Quinton Dunbar of the Seattle Seahawks are wanted on four counts each of armed robbery with a firearm, Miramar police said Thursday. Baker is also wanted on four counts of aggravated assault.
According to a warrant issued Thursday, the men were at a party in Miramar on Wednesday evening when Baker instructed two men to “take money and valuables” from other people at the party. Dunbar is accused of assisting Baker based on statements to police from a witness and four people described as victims. Their names were redacted in the warrant.
The warrant said Baker was involved in an argument at a card table along with someone identified as “Shy.” The two are alleged to have brandished their guns in a person’s face after flipping the card table over.
The warrant alleges that the two men took $4,000 in cash and a $17,500 Audemars Piguet watch from at least one of those at the party. Another person claimed to have been robbed of $7,000 and a $25,000 Hublot watch, authorities said.
Authorities said a victim told police of meeting the two men two days previously at a party in Miami, where Dunbar and Baker were said to have lost $70,000. Attendees told police there was gambling at the party Wednesday night, authorities said.
The warrant said officers were told that Baker directed a person in a red mask to shoot an unnamed person who walked in. Dunbar did not seem to have a gun, but he was instructing others to take valuables, the warrant said.
