Giants CB Deandre Baker Charged with Four Counts of Robbery and Assault with a Firearm

Two NFL players including a 2019 1st round draft pick have been accused of armed robbery and arrest warrants have been issued, TMZ Sports has learned.

Law enforcement confirms Giants cornerback Deandre Baker (the 30th overall pick in 2019) is facing 4 charges of armed robbery and 4 charges of aggravated assault with a firearm.

Seahawks corner Quinton Dunbar is facing 4 counts of armed robbery.

According to police, the two men were partying in Miramar, FL on May 13 when things took a disturbing turn.

Cops say Baker and Dunbar were allegedly hanging at a cookout — playing cards and video games when an argument broke out and Baker whipped out a semi-automatic firearm.

Cops say the men began to rob party guests with Dunbar assisting in taking watches and other valuables at the direction of Baker.

At one point, cops say Baker directed a 3rd man who was wearing a red mask to shoot someone who had just walked into the party but fortunately, no one was actually shot.

Law enforcement says the men made out with more than $7,000 in cash along with several valuable watches including an $18,000 Rolex watch, a $25,000 Hublot and a pricey Audemars Piguet timepiece.

There are conflicting reports from witnesses about whether Dunbar was armed with a gun some say he was, others say he was not.

One witness told police they had met Baker and Dunbar at a party a few days earlier in Miami at which the NFL players had “lost” around $70,000.

Sources say the men had “lost” the money in high-stakes card games and other forms of gambling.

One witness told police the men were gambling again at the May 13 event when an argument broke out and Baker allegedly flipped a table and busted out his piece.

According to police, some people at the party believe it was a planned robbery because when the 3 men were done taking valuables, there were 3 getaway cars strategically positioned to “expedite an immediate departure.”
