The La Verne, California, Police Dept. was called to investigate the break-in and assault on July 8 and were told by the victim that a man she identified as the two-time Super Bowl winner had broken into the house through a locked window and assaulted her when he found her in the home.

The woman, with whom the player had a previous relationship, said that Browner made repeated threats and then made off with a $20,000 Rolex and other property.

Police picked Browner up a few hours after the victim reported the crime.

The former player was charged with robbery, burglary, false imprisonment and two counts of child endangerment.
