Ex-Red­skin Dun­bar ac­cused of armed rob­bery

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - SPORTS -

Po­lice in South Florida are try­ing to find Gi­ants cor­ner­back DeAn­dre Baker and Sea­hawks cor­ner­back Quin­ton Dun­bar af­ter mul­ti­ple wit­nesses ac­cused them of an armed rob­bery at a party, au­thor­i­ties said Thurs­day.

Mi­ra­mar po­lice is­sued ar­rest war­rants for both men Thurs­day on four counts each of armed rob­bery with a firearm. Baker faces an ad­di­tional four counts of ag­gra­vated as­sault with a firearm. The res­i­den­tial com­mu­nity is lo­cated be­tween Fort Laud­erdale and Mi­ami.

Baker, 22, and Dun­bar, 27, were at­tend­ing a cook­out at a Mi­ra­mar home Wed­nes­day night when a fight broke out, and Baker pulled out a hand­gun, the war­rant said. Baker, Dun­bar and two other men be­gan rob­bing other peo­ple at the party of thou­sands of dol­lars in cash, watches and other valu­ables, wit­nesses told in­ves­ti­ga­tors.

Po­lice said the four men then fled the home in three ve­hi­cles: a Mercedes Benz, a Lam­borgh­ini and a BMW. Wit­nesses said the ve­hi­cles were parked in a way that would make it easy to leave quickly, lead­ing de­tec­tives to be­lieve the rob­bery was planned. No in­juries were re­ported.

Baker and Dun­bar are both from Mi­ami.

Baker was one of three firstround draft picks the Gi­ants had last sea­son. He was the 30th pick over­all out of Ge­or­gia. He played in all 16 games, start­ing 15. He had 61 tack­les and no in­ter­cep­tions. He was the last of the three New York picks in that first round.

“We are aware of the sit­u­a­tion. We have been in con­tact with DeAn­dre,” the Gi­ants said in a state­ment. “We have no fur­ther comment at this time.”

Dun­bar signed with the Wash­ing­ton Red­skins as an un­drafted free agent out of Florida in 2015 and was traded to the Sea­hawks in March. He started 11 games last sea­son, mak­ing 37 tack­les and four in­ter­cep­tions.

“We are aware of the sit­u­a­tion in­volv­ing Quin­ton Dun­bar and still gath­er­ing in­for­ma­tion,” the Sea­hawks said in a state­ment. “We will de­fer all fur­ther comment to league in­ves­ti­ga­tors and lo­cal au­thor­i­ties.”
