A news release from the Englewood Cliffs PD confirmed receiving a 911 call reporting an armed robbery at approximately 8.30 p.m. on Sunday night – suspects are said to have run off from the scene, where Cheban and his group lost sight of their attackers.

The "Food God" spoke to Daily Mail exclusively, saying: "It was frightening, I want the guys caught." He added: "The mugger had a gun pointed at my mother's head."

The attack sees Jonathan without his $250,000 Richard Mille watch.

A "young man" is reported to have come up to the threesome and asked what time it was. Jonathan then told his mother and friend to go inside the house. This is when they noticed a second man with a gun in a nearby street.

"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," a statement reads.

The first suspect is reported to be a "dark-skinned Hispanic male in his late 20s to early 30s." He left the scene on foot, where he met with a second suspect, detailed to be a "heavyset Hispanic male wearing a gray sweater."

Neither suspects have been caught. Cheban handed over his designer watch during the attack. It comes nearly four years after 39-year-old Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris, France, with jewelry worth $10 million stolen. Kim stated the robbery to have changed her life, now no longer going out with "big items on," per Daily Mail.

Jonathan has made no mention of the attack on his social media. His last video, posted to the "Food God" Instagram, came one day ago, showing him with a giant pickle sandwich. "PICKLE SANDWICH?! Pickles or buns??" he wrote.

Jonathan is also yet to comment on the alleged incident publicly. His rep made a statement to People confirming the reported incident. Also noted, has been the reported "minor injury" that the PD report states the victim suffered to his wrist. The other witnesses are stated to have been unharmed.
