The Miramar Police Department in Florida issued a warrant for the arrest of New York Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker and Seattle Seahawks corner Quinton Dunbar.

Baker is wanted on four counts of armed robbery with a firearm and four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm for an incident that took place Wednesday. Dunbar is wanted for four counts of armed robbery with a firearm.

The Giants issued a statement Thursday night.

"We are aware of the situation. We have been in contact with DeAndre. We have no further comment at this time," read the statement, obtained by the NFL Network's Kimberly Jones.

The NFL also responded to the incident.

"We are aware of the matter but will decline further comment at this time," read the league's statement, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

According to a police report, Baker attended a party in Miramar on Wednesday. A witness said an argument ensued at a card table and Baker pointed a gun at other party attendees and directed two other men to take money and valuables from others. Dunbar was allegedly one of the men assisting Baker in taking the possessions. A witness said another person wearing a red mask also took valuables at Baker's direction.

According to the warrant, Baker also instructed the person in the red mask to shoot someone who had just walked into the party. No shots were fired, however.

There are conflicting witness statements on whether Dunbar also had a gun.

The police report states the three men then left with expensive watches and more than $7,000 in cash. They left in separate vehicles, making away in a Mercedes Benz, Lamborghini, and BMW that witnesses believed were pre-positioned for a quick getaway.

Baker was the 30th overall pick of the 2019 draft. Dunbar was acquired by the Seahawks in a trade from the Washington Redskins in March.

Dunbar spoke with Seattle media in a conference call Thursday morning.

Both Baker and Dunbar are from Miami, Florida.
