Miami Heat star Roger Mason Jr. was enjoying one of his team’s wins with his sister, as they ate dinner at a Miami restaurant. Unfortunately for Mason, the joy quickly turned to a scary situation when Mason and others in the restaurant were robbed at gunpoint.

Mason had his Rolex stolen during the incident along with his sister’s purse, but both items were ultimately recovered.

It is a horrifying situation to imagine, but it could have been much worse.

From NBCMiami.com:

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….

Shots were fired either inside or outside the restaurant but no one was hit, and the four suspects fled the scene, Burden said….
