Armed robbery inside hotel room "not random crime."

Postby Stu Levitan » Tue Sep 17, 2013 12:43 pm

Noted without comment:
-----

"A woman tells Madison Police she was robbed at gunpoint Tuesday morning inside of a hotel room.

The 23-year-old Oconomowoc woman says she was held up around 1:47 a.m. inside of a room of the Super 8 at 4765 Hayes Rd.

She said three men, two of whom she had socialized with earlier that night, robbed her.

The victim had come to the hotel with a 50-year-old man, who was in the hotel lobby at the time she was being robbed.

Police say this does not appear to be a random crime."

Are you drunk? This post was more random than MH's and it didn't even link to an article. So "something" happened in Madison. Ok, here's some town vibe:

"Chances are, your bra doesn’t fit, and Katherine Bice wants to change that.
“Eighty percent of women wear the wrong bra,” said Bice, owner of La Lingerie on Madison’s Near East Side. “It’s the hardest piece of clothing to fit correctly.”
La Lingerie, which opened three years ago, offers bras from 10 brands in sizes from 30A to 44N, panties in five styles in sizes XS-5X and swimwear in sizes 2-22. Swimwear is carried year-round."

Maybe the robbers were local politicians.

You mean it's common for 23 year old women to get robbed by fifty year old guys they pick up someplace?

I gotta get out more. I thought it was interesting.

I didn't notice it was in the wrong section though. That's bad.

Well, considering we know nothing more about the crime since no link was posted, I don't know what they meant by random.

If I were to hazard a guess, I'd say the 50-year old dude down in the lobby was the pimp.

Including no link was an oversight, I assume, but I would still like to know why this routine police-blotter tidbit rated a topic all its own.
