Mob Steals $100,000 Worth Of Jewelry From Woman On Mag Mile May 15, 2013 4:31 PM

CHICAGO (CBS) – An elderly woman was confronted on the Magnificent Mile by a mob of young men on Wednesday, who proceeded to take $100,000 worth of jewelry she was wearing.

A Chicago police source said the 69-year-old woman from Homewood Flossmoor was accosted by 10 to 12 African American 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.

“Right away, one took my purse, and then the other one said, ‘Either you take off your jewelry or I will,’” the victim tells CBS 2’s Suzanne Le Mignot. “I’m a little lady, and they were big.”

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.

Charges had not yet been filed.

Don't they have security guards and cameras around that area? Still, why would you wear a $50,000 pin? Anyway, this doesn't make my plans for Memorial Day sound like a good idea now.

Ah, she was lying - http://chicago.racked.com/archives/2013/05/17/woman-lied-about-200k-michigan-ave-flash-mob-robbery.php

"A 68 year old woman hailing from suburbia told cops that she was robbed of $200,000 in cash and jewelry Wednesday outside Saks Fifth Avenue on Michigan Ave.. The culprits were allegedly a flash mob of young men. She told ABC 7 that the young men said to her, 'Either you take off your jewelry or I will' and then took her $100,000 diamond brooch and her handbag. Upon review of surveillance footage (and because there were no witnesses) the po po found out she was lying.

So the moral of the story is if you're going to lie about being robbed, go to a "post-peak" area like Armitage at Halsted where there are no cameras and no other shoppers."

Well if she is that age with all that wealth why not give it to those poor kids. Maybe they will go get a doctors degree. I just hope they don't profile anybody when hunting the suspects.

She must have had her stuff insured, and was hoping to cash out of the insurance plan.
