While the Patriots were losing to the Ravens on Sunday night, the Colorado home of Pats reserve safety/special teamer Derrick Martin was being invaded by two armed men.
According to the KUSA-TV website, police in Aurora, Colo., said a number of people were in the home at the time of the break-in, including adults and children. The people were held at gunpoint, but no one was injured. Numerous items were taken, although some items of value were not touched.
“A home invasion of this nature is not a common occurrence,” Aurora Police Department spokesman Frank Fania said. “Two armed men going to innocent victims’ house, forcing their way in, pointing guns at people and taking things.”
Martin, who hails from Denver, played in five regular-season games this season after being signed on Oct. 31. He was inactive for Sunday’s loss. A member of the last two Super Bowl champions, he joined the Patriots after playing for the Giants (2011), Packers (2009-10) and Ravens (2006-08).
