It took me a minute to remember that Roger Mason was even on the Heat and I assume the robbers didn’t know either.
He was lucky he wasn’t killed or injured in this robbery attempt that ended with shots being fired.
Here are the details from NBC Miami.
Miami Heat player Roger Mason Jr. and his sister were robbed at a Biscayne Boulevard restaurant Sunday night, but police said they recovered the NBA guard’s Rolex after a chase ended with the arrest of two suspects on Monday.
Mason and his sister (whose purse was stolen) were two of several victims of the armed robbery at Ni.Do. Caffe, an Italian mozzarella bar at 7295 Biscayne Blvd., Miami Police spokeswoman Frederica Burden said.
Shots were fired either inside or outside the restaurant but no one was hit, and the four suspects fled the scene, Burden said.
Two men have been arrested and two more are still on the run, so please be safe out there. This is the third Heat player to be robbed in Miami over the last year. Both Chris Bosh and Udonis Haslem were victims of home invasions.
