Police have arrested two men in connection with Safaree’s armed robbery case.
TMZ reports that the two suspects were nabbed by cops who chased them down on a bridge traveling from New Jersey into New York. At one point during the chase, the suspects crashed their car and tried to get away by foot. The two men split up but were eventually caught by NYPD. No word yet on whether or not Safaree’s stolen items have been retrieved.
Safaree wasn’t his usual jolly self when he stopped by The Angie Martinez Show yesterday morning. That’s because the he had a frightening run-in just hours beforehand.
In a clip teased by the legendary radio personality, a jewelry-free Safaree describes getting robbed.
“I just got robbed at gunpoint,” he says, fighting back tears. “A couple of hours ago, I just got robbed. Two dudes with guns just ran up on me, had me face down on the floor with a gun to my head. They just took everything.”
Safaree goes on to detail the incident, saying his uncle’s murder during a robbery made the situation even more traumatic. He also suspects that the people behind the robbery could possibly be people he knows.
Safaree has been quiet on social media since the attack, but his homie Juju posted a photo of the two of them encouraging him to keep his head up. “Bless Up! @iamsafaree you are Destined for Greatness, What God Has For you is For you 🙏🏾,” she wrote in the photo’s caption.
Safaree isn’t the only one to fall victim to a robbery recently. Love & Hip Hop Hollywood cast member A1 Bentley was in a studio session and on Instagram live when masked gunmen came in and held him up. A video captured by Hollywood Unlocked reveals the moment one of the men demanded he stop filming.
Safaree’s interview with Angie Martinez airs 3pm ET on Power 105.1.
Juju and Safaree try to clear up the nature of their connection and where their relationship currently stands.
