The mayor said he was robbed while doing a good deed, helping an elderly gentleman. He wrote about the incident in his blog:
“… It happened, on a beautiful evening this past weekend near Union Square. As crimes go, it could have been much worse. I was helping an elderly man when somebody sneaked up behind me and stole my garment bag. I lost a nice suit, a nice pair of shoes and overnight toiletries. Not the end of the world, but frustrating.”
He said in his blog that the real crime was feeling vulnerable.
“Next time I see San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, I’ll tell him the story and give him my word nothing like that will happen to him in Sacramento,” Johnson wrote in his blog.
