Only in Chicago: Woman Robbed and Beaten Outside Mayor Emanuel’s Home

Mayor Rahm Emanuel

Let’s say you’re running for reelection soon as mayor, and you’re already trailing in the polls among your party members (let’s say you’re a Democrat) and then let’s say a woman was robbed and slapped on an early Sunday morning near your home – do you then consider yourself lucky?

Well, sure, you’re lucky it wasn’t you getting robbed and slapped, but otherwise… questionable.

So this 33-year-old woman was walking on the 4200 block of North Hermitage in Chicago at about 1:45 AM, when a man came up behind her and stole her purse, according to police.

Wait a minute, that’s the same block mayor Rahm Emanuel lives on!

The robber struck his victim the lip, according to police.

OK, now, there’s one way this story can transform from a diatribe about the unsafe windy city – how unsafe is it? The other day a woman was robbed just outside the mayor’s home – to a glorious story about justice prevailing. Sure, if the mayor’s security detail caught the bad guy. So, on with the police report:

A police officer assigned to the mayor’s detail heard the woman screaming and another officer chased the suspect southbound on Hermitage, then westbound on Berteau, according to the report.

The suspect got into a silver SUV whose driver had been waiting for him, apparently, and sped off.

The end…
