A former Temple University All-American running back, who helped lead the Baltimore Ravens to a Super Bowl, was the victim of crime in Philadelphia, according to CBS 3 sources.
Those sources confirm that Bernard Pierce was robbed at gunpoint Sunday evening along the 7500 block of Haverford Avenue. His BMW was also stolen.
The car was later recovered and processed at the police garage for possible clues.
Pierce’s mother, Tammy Pierce, spoke to Eyewitness News about the incident involving her son.
“First of all, I thank God that he’s fine. I don’t care whatever he lost — his car, whatever was in there. He’s fine,” Pierce said. “I think he was targeted because people knew who he was, and that’s sad.”
The good news is that Pierce survived the incident unscathed.
