KLTV reports that police met with four people Friday night who said they had been robbed. One of the victims was Mahomes. Thankfully, no one was injured in the incident.

"[Mahomes] and some of his friends had been out to a baseball game earlier that evening here in Tyler [Texas]," Sgt. Darrell Coslin told ESPN. "After the baseball game was over, he and his friends returned to one of the residences. They had pulled into the driveway and were exiting the vehicle when a suspect pulled in behind them and blocked them in. He exited his vehicle and approached them on foot, acting as if he was armed with a handgun."

The suspect, described as a white male, fled the scene in his vehicle.

Coslin said police believe the robbery was a random act, that Mahomes wasn't targeted.

"The suspect had no idea who he was robbing," Coslin added.

Sheriff's deputies later located the suspect's vehicle which was occupied by two males, identified as 34-year-old Michael Blake Pinkerton and 58-year-old Billy ray Johnson, who were taken into custody.
