Milwaukee - On Friday, police confirmed that Yovani Gallardo, 24, Milwaukee Brewer star pitcher and Alex Sanchez, Brewers Clubhouse attendant were robbed while leaving Jalisco's Restaurant at the 1000 block of S. Cesar E. Chavez Drive. Both Gallardo and Sanchez were heading to the adjacent parking lot around 2:30 a.m. when a man approached them and pulled out a handgun. The suspect demanded money and jewelry from the two victims.
Before leaving with the money and jewelry, the suspect hit Sanchez in the head with the weapon. He was not seriously injured, but received a bump, according to police. 
Later on Friday afternoon, Gallardo originally from Michoacan, Mexico made a statement. "It was a scary moment for me and Alex, a tough situation," Gallardo said. "Things like that happen in every city, everywhere you go, and it's unfortunate that happened to me and him. It was one of those random things. I've never had a problem like this before. We're all very thankful.
"We were just going ... getting a bite to eat before heading home. I'm trying to stay out of trouble, and unfortunately, trouble finds us. Nobody wa seriously hurt. We're all OK. Both of us are fine. That was the main thing as far as the incident last night."
Police are looking for the suspect.
