High Noon In Rahmaland: Mob Steals $100,000 Worth Of Jewelry From Woman On Mag Mile

It's getting warm in Rahmaland and that's prime time for LBJ's great grandkids to be hopping and jumping. A 69-year-old woman was confronted on the Magnificent Mile (Rahmaland's answer to NYC's Fifth Avenue) by a mob of young men on Wednesday, who proceeded to take $100,000 worth of jewelry she was wearing, reports CBS Chicago.

A Chicago police source said the woman from the Rahmaland suburb of Homewood Flossmoor was accosted by 10 to 12 men while walking in the 700 block of North Michigan around noon in front of Saks Fifth Avenue.

They threatened to beat her if she didn’t give them her purse and jewelry.

She took off her jewelry, valued at around $100,000, and handed it to them.

According to police, the woman had a leaf-shaped pin she was wearing that was encrusted with diamonds and surrounded by black onyx. That alone was valued at $50,000.

The men involved were between 18 and 19 years-old. They were wearing baggy pants and dreads. They ran northbound on Rush towards Chicago Avenue to escape.

There was also a second incident at 1 p.m., in front of 800 N. Michigan, involving three female African-Americans and one male African-American who stole an iPhone from someone. Those suspects were taken into custody, reports CBS.
