Baltimore Ravens second-year running back Bernard Pierce was robbed and carjacked at gunpoint on Sunday, according to KYW-TV, a CBS-affiliate in Philadelphia.
Here’s the descrption of the incident from KYW:
Bernard Pierce was robbed at gunpoint Sunday evening along the 7500 block of Haverford Avenue. His BMW was also stolen.
Pierce and a male companion, sources say, were shaken but were not injured during the robbery. Sources say a gunman jumped from a car while his accomplice remained behind the wheel and robbed Pierce and his companion, then stole the vehicle.
Pierce’s vehicle has since been recovered and police are currently searching it for possible evidence. Pierce’s wallet and cell phone were also stolen in the robbery, which took place around 5:30 p.m., according to the Philadelphia Daily News.
The man with Pierce has been identified as his cousin.
Pierce’s agent, Marty Magrid, told The Baltimore Sun that Pierce is fine. The former Temple running back was visiting friends in Philadelphia, according to Magrid.
“It’s a shame something like this happens,” Magrid said.
