Quinton Dunbar, Deandre Baker have arrest warrants for alleged armed robbery
NFL players Quinton Dunbar and Deandre Baker have arrest warrants in their names for an alleged armed robbery.
Miramar Police in Florida on Thursday issued the warrants for the players, who are accused of robbery and aggravated assault.
Dunbar and Baker are accused of robbing victims at a party in Florida of expensive watches and cash and making a getaway in luxury vehicles that were waiting outside the party.
According to a witness who spoke with police, Dunbar and Baker lost about $70,000, possibly playing cards at a different party in Miami a few days earlier. On Wednesday night, Dunbar and Baker were at another party in Miramar where attendees were playing cards, video games, and gambling. One witness says Baker and another man flipped over a table and brandished firearms and began to rob those in attendance of cash and watches. They allegedly stole $7,000 in cash, an $18,000 Rolex watch, and a $25,000 Hublot watch.
Baker is described in the affidavit as the man who was directing Dunbar and another man, who was in a mask, to rob people. They then made off in vehicles parked outside.
Both players are charged with four counts of armed robbery, while Baker also is charged with four counts of aggravated assault.
Baker, 22, was a first-round pick by the Giants out of Georgia last year. The cornerback had 48 tackles and eight passes defended.
Dunbar, 27, is also a cornerback. The Florida alum was traded by Washington to Seattle in March for a fifth-round pick. He had 37 tackles in 11 games last season.
Both players are from Miami.
“We are aware of the situation. We have been in contact with DeAndre. We have no further comment at this time,” the Giants said in a statement.
