Former Redskins cornerback Quinton Dunbar is facing four counts of armed robbery with a firearm, according to an arrest warrant issued by Miramar Police (Florida).

Police have also issued a warrant for the arrest of Giants cornerback Deandre Baker, who's charged with four counts of armed robbery with a firearm and four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm.

According to the warrants, Dunbar and Baker were attending a party in Miramar Wednesday evening when an argument broke out at a card table. A witness tells police Baker and another person flipped the card table over and brandished firearms.

Baker began pointing the firearm at an attendee, then walked over to steal $4,000 and an Audemars Piguet watch valued at $17,500, the witness says. That same witness claims to have met Baker and Dunbar at another party in Miami two days earlier, where he says he witnessed Baker and Dunbar lose approx. $70,000.

Another witness tells police he was outside cooking when he heard a commotion inside the home. Upon looking inside, he observed Baker with a gun, pointing it at one of the party attendees. Baker then directed two others to take money and valuables from the other attendees, according to the witness, who alleges he saw Dunbar and another unnamed, masked assailant assisting Baker in taking the items, which included an $18,000 Rolex watch and $800 in cash.

One witness alleges that, upon entering the home, Baker directed the masked assailant to shoot that same witness, who was robbed of $7,000 and a Hublot watch valued at $25,000. That witness says Baker and the masked assailant were both armed with firearms, but says Dunbar was not.

Police say the three suspects then fled in three separate vehicles – a Mercedes Benz, a Lamborghini and a BMW. Police responded to a call of an armed robbery at approx. 12:20 a.m., roughly 45 minutes after the incident occurred.

The charging document says Dunbar took money and watches belonging to the victims with force.

According to the arrest warrant, Dunbar was said to be armed with a semi-automatic firearm, although police "could not conclusively state that Dunbar committed the offense of aggravated assault with a firearm." Still, Dunbar was deemed to be "an active participant in the armed robbery" and "aided and assisted Baker and the other unknown offenders."

Police attempts to reach Baker and Dunbar by cell phone were unsuccessful.

Dunbar, 27, played five seasons for the Redskins before being traded to the Seahawks this offseason. Baker, 22, was a first-round pick by the Giants in 2019.
