Officials for the Cleveland Browns football team confirmed today that at least one of their players had been robbed at gunpoint by six masked men outside of a night club. And that’s not all, this crime apparently took place within 24 hours of another player having his truck stolen. It was bad, bad day to be on the Browns. Then again, when is the last time it was a good day to be on the Browns?
According to TheBlaze, Greg Newsome II posted up a dark, cryptic tweet not long after the robbery occurred making a reference to what had transpired. “It’s a cruel world we live in,” he stated in the post on Monday, along with a prayer emoji.
It’s a cruel world we live in🙏🏽

“Newsome, a cornerback, had been at the Rumor Bar and Lounge in downtown Cleveland with Perrion Winfrey, a defensive tackle, when one of the players was accosted by six masked robbers in a nearby parking lot at about 3:30 in the morning on Monday,” the report said, adding, “The robbers stole his jewelry and sped away in a 2022 Ram 1500 TRX truck owned by one of the players. The other player reportedly remained inside the bar and did not witness the robbery.”
As of this writing, there have been no arrests made concerning the robbery, but fortunately, no one was hurt during the incident.
A GPS was used to track down the vehicle, however, it was moving at a speed so fast that it was not able to be intercepted. Local media also reported that there were no surveillance cameras pointing at the parking lot where the situation unfolded.
Demetric Felton reported on Sunday that his 2023 Dodge Durango Hellcat had been taken from a parking garage. Both incidents happened within 24 hours of each other. Man, that’s a heck of a rough day. And you thought your day sucked. Geesh.
“I’m glad our guys are OK,” Kevin Stefanski said in a comment made to reporters. “I want all of our community to be safe. The Cleveland police have been outstanding. We want everybody to be safe, and we want to get violent people off of our streets.”
Myles Garret, an All-Pro defensive end, spoke with the media and said he was thankful that neither of his teammates were hurt.
“At the end of the day, we got to do better as a community. We got to set an example, and it starts with us,” Garrett remarked.
“And we got to go into the community and show that, you know, we’re better, we’re all better than this,” he said in conclusion, “and how to lead by example.”
You know what would really help?
If Democratic leadership in major cities across the United States would stop taking it easy on criminals, allowing them to be held accountable for their actions by the penalty of law. Why should criminals stop engaging in thefts and robberies when it’s easy money and they don’t have to worry about having the book thrown at them?
Time to return to being tough on crime.
