Arrest warrants have been issued in Florida for two NFL defensive backs accused of robbing party guests of over $50,000 in cash and jewelry.
A spokesman for the Miramar Police Department told ESPN they have issued arrest warrants for NY Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker and Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar.
Baker is charged with four counts of armed robbery with a firearm and four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm while Dunbar has been charged with four counts of armed robbery.
Neither man is in custody. The Miramar police are in discussions with one of the player's reps to turn himself in.
Police say Baker, Dunbar and another man held up guests at a house party in Broward County, Florida, after they lost $70,000 gambling at a party in Miami several days earlier.
The three suspects robbed guests at gunpoint taking $12,000 in cash, an $18,000 Rolex watch and a $25,000 Hublot watch.
The third man, wearing a red mask, was allegedly told by Baker to shoot a party guest. But the unidentified robber refused to shoot the man.
The three suspects left in three different vehicles -- a Mercedes Benz, a Lamborghini and a BMW.
The NFL says it is aware of the charges but they had no further comment.
Baker was a first round draft pick by the Giants in 2019. Dunbar spent the first 5 seasons of his career with the Washington Redskins before the Seahawks acquired him for a 2020 fifth-round draft pick in March.

NFL star Janoris Jenkins was let go by the NY Giants after he insulted a fan on Twitter.com and then refused to apologize.
Jenkins responded to a Twitter user’s comment by calling him a word that is hurtful to people with special needs and delayed developmental disorders.
When asked about using the word - which is banned by organizations such as the Special Olympics, Jenkins shrugged and said it was just "hood" talk.
The Giants asked Jenkins, 31, to publicly apologize, and when he refused, he was fired. Jenkins is nearing the end of his career. The cornerback struggled on the defensive line, which didn't help the Giants' dismal 2-11 record this season.
All of which means Jenkins may not be signed by another NFL team.
This is bad news for Jenkins' baby mama, Sontaevia Armstrong, who received an increase in child support for her two kids in 2016.
Jenkins, who signed a $62 million contract with the Giants in 2016, was paying Armstrong $4,000 a month. But Armstrong asked a judge to increase his voluntary child support after he signed that fat contract.
Jenkins has had his share of troubling headlines. In 2018, his brother was charged with manslaughter after a dead body was found in the basement of Jenkins' mansion.
Police arrested William Jenkins and charged him with aggravated manslaughter in the death of Roosevelt Rene.
Janoris told TMZ that Rene was a "good friend" and "it hurts my heart to know the he's passed."

When the St. Louis Rams selected gay football player Michael Sam as the 249th overall pick in the NFL draft, some of us chuckled because we knew that several gay players were already chosen ahead of him.
The other gay players chose not to come out as openly gay out of fear that their sexual preferences might affect their draft status. Sam was hailed as a "hero," but he has since been exposed as an opportunist who came out for financial gain. There is no doubt that Sam's sexual preferences for men affected his draft status.
Sources claim NY Giants rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr (pictured above) was so worried about rumors of his sexual preference affecting his draft status that he, or someone in his camp, created an elaborate Manti Te'o-style hoax to deflect such rumors.
