Redskins player DeSean Jackson victim of home invasion

WASHINGTON– Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson’s California home was the scene of an armed home invasion on Wednesday.

The Los Angeles Police Department says four armed people entered Jackson’s home in the 19000 block of Santa Rita Street in the Tarzana neighborhood of L.A.

There were five people in the house at the time, but their relationship to Jackson is unknown at this time. Jackson was at Redskins Park at the time of the invasion.

LAPD is not reporting any injuries from the incident, nor are they releasing any information on possible suspects. They do not know if anything was taken during the event.

Sports news website Bleacher Report says this isn’t the first time Jackson has had trouble in his own home. According to Bleacher Report, Jackson’s Philadelphia home was robbed of $250,000 in 2014 while he was still playing for the Eagles.

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden says Jackson is anxious about the incident, but will let police handle the situation.

“Obviously he’s concerned, and he’s letting law enforcement take care of it,” says Gruden, “he’ll get to the bottom of it, as will the police, and we’ll go from there.”

Jackson will not play in Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers due to continuing issues with his hamstring.
