Home of Charlotte Bobcats' Stephen Jackson stormed by armed robbers, wife locked in bathroom

Armed men broke into the home of Charlotte Bobcats player Stephen Jackson, holding his wife at gunpoint before locking her in a bathroom, police said.

Three men broke into the home in a gated community of two dozen million-dollar homes around 2:45 a.m. Wednesday, police said.

Jackson was in Texas for a basketball camp and his wife was not injured, multiple media organizations reported.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police had made no arrests as of Friday morning, Officer Rosalyn Harrington, a department spokeswoman, told The Associated Press.

Police did not release any other details about the incident.

Jackson is a shooting guard who helped lead the Bobcats to their first playoff appearance last spring.

Public records list Jackson and his wife, Renata, as occupants of the $1.7 million home where they've lived since December, The Charlotte Observer reported. Jackson arrived in Charlotte the previous month after the team acquired his contract rights in a trade with the Golden State Warriors.

The 6,300-square-foot tan stucco home with three garages is owned by former Bobcats guard Jason Richardson, who was traded to the Phoenix Suns during the 2008-09 season.

Jackson, 32, could not be reached for comment. A Bobcats team spokesman declined comment Friday.
