Reuben Foster escapes attempted armed robbery, report says”

MissionLocal.org first reported the incident and that Foster and Armstrong were involved.

Citing a San Francisco Police Department report, the story says that the two were at a downtown club at 2 a.m. on Monday when Foster, the 49ers' first-round draft pick, noticed a auto casing the establishment.

Foster helped create this sequence when he noticed the vehicle "casing the joint", according to the police report. This left him feeling "like he was going to be robbed", according to a subsequent police report.

"Despite the presence of the guard, the players claim the Audi driver was undeterred, pulling up in close proximity to them", the report read. Despite Foster and Armstrong walking out of the club with two security guards, two unidentified men in a white Audi pointed an assault rife and a handgun at them. Armstrong and Foster then contacted police from the nearby Westin St. Francis.

The incident took place around 2 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 16.

Because the investigation is active, the department can't legally release the police report or name the victims, but Andraychak was able to offer a general synopsis of what the victims of the attempted robbery reported to police on Monday morning. Immediate inquiries to the 49ers were not answered specially.

"You can look at it a bunch of different ways", he said.

"They did the right thing", An SFPD veteran said. "They were smart enough to have the security guard escort them to their vehicle". "... You want guys to stay out of trouble and not put themselves in that situation".

Said Reid: "Nothing's going to change on my part until we get a more concrete plan, to were I feel I don't need to protest more, because the National Football League is presenting a better platform".

As for whether to run or submit to the robbers, another veteran cop said that running is "simply human nature". "You're betting that the robbers aren't' so committed that they're going to shoot", says the officer.

Armstrong and Foster are hardly the first pro athletes targeted for armed robbery in this city. Monday night's player Saturdays. At that point, Foster and Armstrong made a decision to run, and both were able to escape without being harmed or robbed.
