Mayor robbed in other city

Not even a mayor is immune to street crime. But at least Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson wasn't robbed in his own city.

Johnson, who is a former NBA star, says he was in San Francisco over the weekend for a conference, put down his belongings near Union Square to help a man struggling with HIS stuff, and somebody made off with his suit, a pair of shoes and some personal items. Not the ones he was wearing, of course.

You've got to hand it to a robber who would steal from a former NBA player. Johnson is not notably tall at 6-feet-1, but he played guard and presumably can still run pretty fast.
