A Democratic candidate for Illinois Attorney General has new motivation to get tough on crime.
Chicago Precinct Committeeman Aaron Goldstein was taking part in publicity photos on the city's Northwest side when he and his campaign team were approached by three suspects in their 20s in broad daylight.
One suspect flashed a handgun during the incident in the 4600 block of North Albany Avenue in Albany Park.
The suspects demanded camera equipment and other personal belongings, including cell phones.
No one was hurt and Goldstein campaign officials don't believe the suspects had any political motivation.
Goldstein is among eight Democrats seeking the nod for Illinois Attorney General.
