FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - TCU defensive end Devonte Fields has declined to press charges after telling Fort Worth police that he was beaten and robbed by armed suspects.

Coach Gary Patterson says Fields was the victim but he’s OK and attended classes and workouts Tuesday, hours after the incident. A police report says Fields at one point struggled with a gunman and the weapon fired but nobody was shot and the three suspects fled.

Police say the attack happened at the player’s off-campus residence when Fields went outside to start his car. A cellphone, a video game system and some clothing items were stolen from his home.

TCU personnel examined Fields, who declined further medical attention.
