MIAMI – South Florida police try to find New York Giants DeAndre Baker cornerback and Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar after multiple witnesses accused them of armed robbery in a party, authorities said on Thursday.

Miramar police issued arrest warrants against the two men on Thursday for four counts of armed robbery with a firearm. Baker faces four other counts of aggravated assault with a gun. The residential community is located between Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

Baker, 22, and Dunbar, 27, were attending a barbecue in a Miramar home Wednesday night when a fight broke out and Baker pulled out a handgun, the attorney said. Baker, Dunbar and two other men started robbing other people at the party for thousands of dollars in cash, watches and other valuables, witnesses told investigators.

Police said the four men then fled the home in three vehicles: a Mercedes Benz, a Lamborghini and a BMW. Witnesses said the vehicles were parked to facilitate a quick departure, which prompted detectives to believe the flight was planned. No injuries were reported.

Baker and Dunbar are both from Miami.

Baker was one of three Giants’ first round draft picks last season. He was the 30th overall choice outside Georgia. He played in 16 games, starting at 15. He had 61 tackles and no interceptions. He was the last of New York’s three picks in this first round.

“We are aware of the situation. We have been in contact with DeAndre,” the Giants said in a statement. “We have no further comments at this time.”

Dunbar signed with the Washington Redskins as an Florida undrawn free agent in 2015 and was traded to the Seahawks in March. He started 11 games last season, making 37 tackles and four interceptions.

“We are aware of the situation involving Quinton Dunbar and continue to collect information,” the Seahawks said in a statement. “We will defer any other comments to league investigators and local authorities.”

Dunbar spent Thursday morning a videoconference with Seattle media for the first time since his transfer from Washington to the Seahawks in March.

“You just want to feel wanted at the end of the day. … I just hope to pay them back with the way I’m doing as a person,” Dunbar said during the videoconference.
