Report: Chiefs’ Damien Williams robbed at Los Angeles home
Williams was unharmed in the incident, but the robbers stole about $1,000 in cash.
TMZ says that the 28-year-old checked into his home on Saturday night when three intruders proceeded to break in through the back entrance.
The men then surrounded Williams and his guests and did not brandish a weapon, but made it clear that they wanted money. Williams and his guests complied. The suspects then made off with the money and fled.
LAPD is investigating the incident and is looking for possible surveillance footage.
Williams is coming off of a 2019-20 campaign in which he was limited to 11 games during the regular season as a result of knee issues. During the time he was on the field, he rushed for 498 yards and five touchdowns while averaging 4.5 yards per carry.
In spite of his shoddy production in the regular season, Williams played a pivotal role in the Chiefs’ championship run in the playoffs, rattling off 196 yards and four scores on the ground in three postseason contests.
Most importantly, Williams rushed for 104 yards and a touchdown while logging four catches for 29 yards and a score in Kansas City’s Super Bowl win over the San Francisco 49ers.
The undrafted University of Oklahoma product spent the first four years of his career with the Miami Dolphins, amassing a grand total of 477 yards and three rushing touchdowns before linking up with the Chiefs in 2018.
Over the course of his six-year NFL tenure, Williams has registered 1,231 yards while reaching the end zone 12 times on the ground.
