Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce Robbed at Gunpoint

Baltimore Ravens running back Bernard Pierce was robbed at gunpoint Sunday and had his car stolen according to various reports. No injuries have been reported at this time.

The incident occurred in Philadelphia and the car has already been recovered. Walt Hunter of CBS Philly had the scoop first:

Those sources confirm that Bernard Pierce was robbed at gunpoint Sunday evening along the 7500 block of Haverford Avenue. His BMW was also stolen.

The car was later recovered and processed at the police garage for possible clues.

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.

Police are holding the car and combing it for possible evidence but have come up with nothing in regards to a suspect(s) so far. According to the report the Baltimore Ravens issued a statement saying they are aware of the situation and have already been in contact with Pierce.

Luckily no one was harmed in the process of the incident. Pierce figures to play a massive role yet again next season acting as the primary backup to starter Ray Rice.
