Oakland Council Candidate Robbed After Anti-Crime Meeting
An Oakland city council candidate was robbed on his way home from an anti-crime meeting.
Dan Kalb knows a thing or two about crime. After the North Oakland resident and City Council candidate attended an anti-crime meeting, he was robbed, according to reports.
Kalb, his backed turned, was fishing in his car for a bag and campaign literature when he "felt a little poke in the back of my ribs," he told the newspaper.
He thought it was a neighbor, when it was in fact a stranger with a gun. The assailant demanded his iPhone and wallet, the newspaper reported.
Coming a few minutes after he left an anti-crime meeting, the incident is, "kind of ironic, isn't it?" according to Kalb.
The man told Kalb to "Run!" after he collected his iPhone and wallet, and Kalb called police back at his home.
