Berea, OH – Two Cleveland Browns players were robbed by six masked men as they left a club in a suburb of Cleveland early on Monday morning.
The police report said that the National Football League (NFL) players left the bar at about 3:30 a.m. on June 5 and walked to a vehicle they had parked in a nearby lot, ESPN reported.
That was when six armed, masked men jumped out of another vehicle and robbed Cleveland Browns cornerback Greg Newsome II and defensive tackle Perrion Winfrey, according to police.
The gunman stole the NFL players’ jewelry and fled in Newsome’s truck, ESPN reported.
Police have not yet recovered the stolen vehicle.
Neither of the players were injured during the robbery, KNSD reported.
The cornerback alluded to the robbery in a social media post late on Monday night, ESPN reported.
“It’s a cruel world we live in,” Newsome wrote.
It’s a cruel world we live in🙏🏽
