Dem Attorney General Candidate in Illinois Robbed at Gunpoint While Taking Promotional Photos
A Democratic candidate running for Illinois attorney general was robbed at gunpoint on Thursday afternoon while taking promotional photos for his campaign, according to his campaign manager and authorities.
Aaron Goldstein, 42, and several members of his campaign team were taking publicity shots in the middle of the afternoon when three men in their early 20s approached them, according to the Chicago Tribune.
One of the men flashed a handgun and demanded the camera equipment and other personal belongings from the team, according to police.
The gunman and two other men robbed Goldstein and four others of camera equipment and their cellphones before they ran away, the law enforcement source said. As of Thursday evening, no one was in custody, police said.
Police described the three suspects as between 20 and 24 years old. They did not release a detailed description of the suspects.
It sounds like Illinois needs tougher law enforcement. It’s amazing that this happened in broad daylight.
