State rep robbed at gunpoint
November 16, 2009 (WLS) -- State Representative Annazette Collins was robbed at gunpoint by a masked man on Chicago's South Side.
The legislator from Chicago was with her sister walking near 61st and Woodlawn around 8 p.m. Sunday. They told police a gunman wearing a black ski mask and skull cap demanded a purse. He took Collins' bag and fled on foot.
Neither woman was hurt.
Investigators say the theft happened in a courtyard that was unsecured because of a glitch due to the new area code that requires 11-digit dialing.
