Bernard Pierce, a former Temple Owl and current Baltimore Ravens running back, was robbed at gunpoint Sunday evening in Philadelphia, according to a report by CBS 3 Philadelphia.

Pierce, a scintillating rusher for the Owls from 2009-12, was supposedly unharmed in a carjacking along the 7500 block of Haverford Avenue, although he was shaken.

According to the report, the gunman jumped from a car as his accomplice continued to drive the vehicle. Pierce and a friend were then robbed, and Pierce's BMW was stolen.

The car was later found in another part of the city. It was then taken to a police garage where it was processed for potential evidence that might lead to a suspect.

The Ravens organization responded to the incident with an email, stating: "We have been in contact with Bernard and we are aware of the situation."

Philadelphia police said they are hopeful anyone with information will come forward to help.

In his rookie NFL season, Pierce played a role in Baltimore's Super Bowl win, tallying 33 rushing yards in the 34-31 win over the San Francisco 49ers.
