NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- New York Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker has turned himself in to police in south Florida after an arrest warrant was issued, his lawyer Bradford Cohen confirmed Saturday morning.

Baker, 22, was wanted for four counts of armed robbery with a firearm and four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm.

He's been booked into a Broward County jail, according to its database.

"DeAndre turned himself in this morning,” Cohen wrote in an Instagram post. "I am a believer in the system and that if everything works, the matter will be appropriately resolved. Both my client and I have felt Miramar Police and the detectives working the case were accommodating and went out of their way to assure Mr. Baker’s privacy during this hard time. That is not just lip service. It is a fact, and we appreciate it."

The charges stem from a party he attended on Wednesday night, at which police in Miramar claim Baker, allegedly armed with a semi-automatic firearm, took money and watches belonging to multiple victims “with force,” at a house party, per Miramar PD’s release.

According to the Miramar police report, a witness "observed Deandre Lamar Baker with a gun in his hand. Baker was pointing it at one of the attendees of the party… Baker was directing two other individuals to take money and valuables from the other attendees."

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar was also at the party, and an arrest warrent is out for him, as well. But his lawyer Michael Grieco said Saturday morning a decision has not been made if or when his client will turn himself in, ESPN reported.

"Nobody is running from this," Grieco said. "My client is innocent. I don't want him to do a minute in jail for this. If we decide that he will turn himself in, then he will do so. But Miramar Police Department is pot committed to this case because it has become public."
