Per Brady Henderson of ESPN, a Miramar Police Department spokesperson said there have been discussions with at least one of the athletes’ legal representatives about turning themself in, but “neither Baker nor Dunbar had done so as of 8:10 p.m. ET.”
According to the arrest report, Baker and Dunbar are accused of stealing $12,400 and four watches valued at $61,1000 while armed with semi-automatic firearms.
The report couldn’t “conclusively state that Dunbar committed the offense of aggravated assault with a firearm” at the party where the incident transpired.

The NFL and Giants issued separate statements about the criminal investigation via NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Kimberly Jones, respectively, both saying essentially the same thing.
They’re aware of the situation and won’t comment further. The Giants have been in touch with Baker, their first-round draft pick in 2019.
The Seahawks said they’re deferring comments to investigators from the league and law enforcement. The team just traded for Dunbar in March.
