As reported, a Chicago rapper and producer who thought he was scouting our some new talent was instead robbed of $35,000 in jewelry. The man was lured to a stairwell in an Oak Park apartment building on the 200 block of Washington Blvd and surprised by a man who displayed a silver semi automatic pistol. When the producer turned around, the another man pulled out a black 9mm handgun and robbed the man of his jewelry.  As with the countless other armed robberies Oak Park has experienced, the handgun ban did not deter the criminals, since the possibility of a $1,000 to $2,000 fine won’t phase someone who is willing to commit serious felonies such as assault with a deadly weapon and armed robbery.
