Baltimore Ravens RB, former Temple star Bernard Pierce robbed in Philly
Bernard Pierce, a second-year running back with the defending Super Bowl champions Baltimore Ravens, was robbed at gunpoint in Philadelphia’s Overbrook Park neighborhood over the weekend.
Pierce, an Ardmore native who starred at Temple University, and a male friend were robbed on the 7500 block of Haverford Avenue Sunday evening, CBS Philly reports. Pierce’s BMX was also stolen in the crime, but was later recovered by police.
Pierce, 23, and his friend were not injured in the robbery.
Pierce rushed for 532 yards his rookie season with the Ravens. His role with the team increased after Baltimore fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and replaced him with Jim Caldwell.
