Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith and his family are safe after a scary situation in Los Angeles.

Smith and his family were robbed at gunpoint at a hotel after flying to the city. Jeff Zrebiec of TheAthletic.com reports that no one was hurt.

Smith was followed from Los Angeles International Airport by the assailant and that Smith was in touch with the team about the incident.

“We are aware of the situation involving Jimmy Smith. We have spoken with Jimmy and he and his family are safe,” the Ravens said in a statement.

Smith is signed for the 2021 season. It will be his 11th year with the team that drafted him in the first round of the 2011 draft.

  1. I just read a couple of days ago that violent crimes and robberies are on the rise. God help us. Glad he and his family are safe!

  2. How does anyone know he was followed from the airport. Did the thief tell him that? Did Jimmy see the thief on the plane?

  3. If they’re reporting that the perpetrator followed them from the airport they probably have camera/video footage from the airport where he’s (assuming it was a guy, or more than one guy) visible or the vehicle was visible and then footage from the hotel or traffic cameras where the perp/vehicle was again visible and they could track the movements of the car. Or maybe they already have suspects who they recognized in the video or arrested a suspect that confessed (likely would have been reported if they made an arrest though).

  4. To rob a man takes a certain type of scumbag…to rob a man with his family is just scary. The criminal should get 10 yrs for every member of the family! Instead of one count of armed robbery, it should be 3 counts (assuming it was both man/wife/1kid) I’m glad everybody is safe but I’m sure pretty traumatized with a lasting horrible memory for life.
