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 vehicle casing the establishment.
Foster and Armstrong were at a club in downtown San Francisco hours after the team's loss in Washington when unidentified men tried tried taking their valuables at gun point even after the National Football League players asked for a security escort while leaving.
Foster reportedly gave his watch and rings to a woman in the club to hold.
They were subsequently confronted by "two masked men wearing white hoodies, carrying an assault rifle and a handgun", according to the publication. At that point, the men say they "turned and ran like hell", which made the alleged assailants retreat to their Audi and escape.
The two players ended up at a local hotel where they called police. Nobody was injured, and nothing got stolen.
The 49ers acknowledged the report shortly after it was posted to Mission Local, an independent site (and former UC Berkeley project) focused on the San Francisco district. He continued, "They were smart enough to have the security guard escort them to their vehicle". But you don't want to take on [high-powered weaponry]. "Better to get out of there, ' the report continued". An "SFPD veteran" said the players did the right thing by asking for a security escort and fleeing the scene before it escalated. "But you're gambling with your life".
In a Tuesday statement, the 49ers said they were aware of the incident and were "very thankful no one was harmed". "Reuben and Ray-Ray have been, and will continue to be, cooperative with any further police investigation." .
