Ravens running back Bernard Pierce was robbed at gunpoint and had his car stolen on Sunday night in Philadelphia,  according to a report from CBS 3 in Philadelphia.

Pierce was not injured in the confrontation, and the Ravens told the TV station in a statement that, "We have been in contact with Bernard and we are aware of the situation.”

According to the TV station report, Pierce and another man were robbed by a gunman who jumped from  a car while his accomplice remained behind the wheel.  Then Pierce's BMW was taken, and it was later recovered in Philadelphia and processed for evidence by the police.

Pierce grew up in the Philadelphia area and played collegiately at Temple.

He was a third-round draft pick last season and grew to be a strong complement to starting running back Ray Rice. Pierce finished the regular season with 108 carries for 532 yards and one touchdown.
