Ryan Lochte, 3 Other U.S. Swimmers Robbed At Rio Olympics, USOC Says

Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte and three other US swimmers were safe and cooperating with police after being robbed at gunpoint in Rio de Janeiro, the U.S. Olympic Committee said.
One of the bandits reportedly put a gun to Lochte's forehead.

Four U.S. swimmers, including Ryan Lochte, were robbed at gunpoint Saturday, the U.S. Olympic Committee said after initially denying that Lochte was robbed. The four swimmers, who also included Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger and Jimmy Feigen, were robbed by individuals posing as police officers as they headed to the Olympic Village, USOC spokesman Patrick Sandusky said. “All four athletes are safe and cooperating with authorities,” Sandusky said.
