Rice was out of town when the burglary occurred sometime between 8:30 p.m. Friday and 12:50 a.m. Saturday, but a friend was staying in his Reisterstown home and called the police, Cpl. Cathleen Batton, a spokeswoman for Baltimore County Police said.
The robber was reportedly caught on surveillance cameras entering Rice's home through a rear window.
"My family and I are fine, which is the most important thing," Rice said in a statement issued by the team. "This is an unfortunate incident that I am dealing with through the proper channels.''
