‘It’s a Cruel World’: Two NFL Players Robbed at Gunpoint by Six Masked Men
Two Cleveland Browns defensive players were robbed at gunpoint by six masked men outside a downtown nightclub, according to police.
Police redacted the names of the players in a field case report.
However, a person familiar with the situation identified the players as cornerback Greg Newsome II and tackle Perrion Winfrey. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter.
The Browns opened their mandatory minicamp on Tuesday.
According to police, one of the players was returning to his truck in a parking lot at 3:30 a.m. Monday when the masked suspects jumped out of a car and robbed him of jewelry before fleeing in his vehicle.
