New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski can be heard on a 911 call calmly telling a dispatcher that his home was burglarised while he was at the Super Bowl.

He can be heard telling the dispatcher on Monday: “This is Rob Gronkowski calling, and while I was gone my whole house got robbed, while on the Super Bowl trip. And I just got back.”

Foxborough Police Chief William Baker confirmed on Tuesday his department is investigating a burglary at Gronkowski’s home.

He said officers responded to the home just after 6pm Eastern time on Monday.

Baker said “out of respect for Mr. Gronkowski’s privacy and because this is an active and dynamic criminal investigation we’re not going to be releasing any information right now about what was stolen and whether any suspects exist”.

A police report redacted all details of what was taken, but said someone broke a window to get in. In a recording of a call between responding officers and dispatch, a dispatcher says “multiple safes and possible guns” were taken.

The report said Gronkowski lives with two roommates, both of whom reported items stolen.

Gronkowski had nine catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots’ 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
