Baltimore Ravens running back Bernard Pierce was robbed at gunpoint Sunday evening in Philadelphia and had his car stolen, reports CBS 3 in Philadelphia.

The Ravens organization say they have made contact with Pierce and are “aware of the situation.”

Pierce rushed 108 times for 532 yards and one touchdown in his rookie campaign, after being drafted out of Temple in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

More from CBS 3:

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.

The car was recovered in another part of the city and taken to the police garage, where it was carefully processed for any possible evidence that might lead to a suspect.

Thats life in the big city!  I left a Hotel in Washington DC, aroung 5 PM and just before departing the Hotel, I called by the front desk to answer a phone.  The call took about 2 minutes and two men passed me and went out about 200 ft ahead of me and started walking down the street.  A taxie stopped beside the two men, a man jumped out of the back, robbed the two men, jumped back in the Cab and left.  Like I said Life in the big city.

@goingaways A 71 year old chick?  In addition to double triple standards don't forget double secret probation.  You need to check your browser as you appear to be commenting on a different article.  Either that or you're proof that Jr. High school is out for the summer.
