Abduction/Robbery In Minneapolis

Minneapolis citizens have seen it all, so why not a drive-by abduction/robbery on a Sunday morning in broad daylight?

KSTP Eyewitness News reports: "Minneapolis woman pulled into car and robbed".

A Minneapolis woman was taken against her will Sunday morning while she walked to work. It happened on 25th Street between Harriet and Grand Avenues around 6:50 Sunday morning.

Molly Kirwan says during her walk a man pulled over in his car, grabbed her and forced her inside. He drove her around for 10 minutes and robbed her of $100 and credit cards. The robber then let her go. Kirwan was not physically harmed during the incident.
Mr. Mayor, take note: Ms. Kirwan's "high risk" behavior was walking to work on Sunday morning at ten minutes to seven in the Red Zone.

There is no suspect description.

Meanwhile, more details emerge following the 20th murder in Minneapolis, as the Red Star reports:

Authorities have identified the man who was shot early Saturday in south Minneapolis and found dead hours later about a block away.

A pedestrian walking on the 3700 block of Columbus Avenue S. shortly before 9 a.m. Saturday spotted Erman Z. Edmonds, 45, of Minneapolis lying outside the front of a duplex.
Mr. Edmonds also made the mistake of occupying the Red Zone.
