Jonathan Cheban, also known as “Foodgod,” famous for being one of Kim Kardashian West’s close friends, was robbed at gunpoint in New Jersey over the weekend. 

Cheban’s representative stated that the entrepreneur was with his mother and a friend in Englewood Cliffs when the alleged robbery took place. Cheban says that the robber took his $250,000 Richard Mille watch after pointing a gun at his mother’s head.

The Englewood Cliffs Police Department confirmed in a news release that they received a 911 call about an armed robbery around 8:30 p.m. on Sunday. Authorities said the caller stated the two male suspects fled on foot to the nearby highway, Route 9W after the incident.

The release said, “Officers on scene within approximately one minute of the report, and gained a description of the suspects from the victim and witnesses,” according to the release. “Responding officers tracked the suspects with a K9 unit; however the search yielded negative results for the suspects, weapons, or proceeds from the robbery.”

“The first suspect – who is described as a dark-skinned Hispanic male, in his late 20s to early 30s wearing a purple shirt, light blue jeans, and white and gray sneakers – approached the victim in the driveway of the residence on East Bayview,” the release continued. “As he exited his vehicle, the suspect asked him what time it was. The suspect then brandished a silver-colored semiautomatic handgun and pointed it at the victim and two other witnesses on scene. The suspect then forcibly removed a watch valued at approximately $250,000 from the victim’s wrist causing minor injury to the victim. The other witnesses on scene were unharmed. The suspect fled the scene on foot and met up with a second suspect described as a heavyset Hispanic male wearing a gray sweater.”

Police have since released a sketch of the first subject described as well as pictures of Cheban’s missing watch.

The incident involving Cheban comes nearly four years after Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint at the No Address Hotel during Paris Fashion Week. Millions of dollars worth of jewelry were stolen from Kardashian West including a $4 million ring.
