Despite being on-set, Game and Chris Brown did not witness the robbery.
According to sources on the music video shoot say Mars had walked about a block away from the set when the incident occurred. The suspects were said to have taken Mars' jewelry and wallet which contained a few thousand dollars.

A rep for Game said the set security guards were present on set, but no one at the shoot witnessed the incident. (FOX News)
