BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The police report was released Tuesday after Ravens rookie kicker Kaare Vedvik was assaulted Saturday in east Baltimore.

Vedvik, a kicker and punter from Norway, was placed on the team’s reserve injury list Sunday.

Police say the assault happened just before 4 a.m. Saturday. When officers arrived in the area of the 2000 block of Boone St., they found the victim, identified as Vedvik. He was suffering from upper body injuries.

He was taken to Shock Trauma in Baltimore for treatment.

According to the police report, Vedvik was out in Fells Point earlier in the evening before he was assaulted, but he doesn’t remember the circumstances that led to his assault.

Vedvik was out with a couple of teammates, but they decided they wanted to leave. Vedvik reportedly decided to stay out with a couple ladies he was with.

The teammates he was out with said they called him just after 3 a.m., and Vedvik said he was “good.”

Later on, the kicker would end up three miles away from Fells, in the 200 block of Boone Street in East Baltimore, where he was assaulted and robbed around 4 a.m.

Vedvik reportedly told the head of security for the Ravens, Darren Sanders, that he doesn’t remember anything after that phone call with teammates, including how he ended up in the area where the assault happened.

Vedvik told Sanders that his wallet and cell phone were gone.

“My dad said nothing good ever happens after midnight and it was well after midnight,” said Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh. “We’ll be talking to our young guys next year, I guess. Be a little smarter,”

It was a night out with teammates that ended with the 24-year-old being assaulted and robbed, which may have cost him a job in the NFL.

“It was disappointing for him because I think it cost him a chance to kick in this league. He would’ve had a shot. There was plenty of trade talks,” said Harbaugh.

Harbaugh said on Monday that Vedvik’s face remained swollen and stitched up.

Police have not released any information on potential suspects.

    They tell these idiots how to stay safe, then they get mugged. Not rocket science.

  7. You don’t want to be in Baltimore after sunset. Ain’t real safe in the sunshine, either.

    “I don’t remember” is code for “I was looking for gay sex-drugs”.

    “A Norwegian went into Baltimore after dark….”

    Sounds like the beginning of a joke.

    Here’s some free advice. On the streets between midnight and sunrise———————-nothing good ever happens.

  11. The Black Robbery Offender Rate is over 10-TIMES HIGHER than the White Robbery Offender Rate…the Black Homicide Offender Rate is 9-TIMES HIGHER than the White Homicide Offender Rate. Those are NATIONAL figures. In Baltimore, the rates are over 50-times higher!
