GANGLAND: Democrat Candidate ROBBED DURING EVENT in Chicago”

A candidate seeking the Democratic party's nomination to run for Illinois' Attorney General's #Office became a victim [VIDEO]of a violent robbery on Thursday, according to Fox News reports. One of the men had a handgun and demanded Goldstein and the campaign aides turn over the camera equipment and other personal belongings, including their cell phones, which they did.

Police did not release a detailed description of the three suspects, only divulging that the trio were young men between 20-24 years old.

Aaron Goldstein was with several members of his campaign taking publicity shots around 3:30 p.m. Thursday in the Albany Park neighborhood when the robbery happened, the reports.

According to the Chicago Tribune, there were a total of three robbery suspects.

Nobody was physically harmed in the robbery, that police believe was a crime of opportunity and not a targeted assault.

Murphy and members of Goldstein's campaign did not respond to a request for comment Friday. "Basically, this was a totally a random act of violence in the community".

"So, as far as the campaign, we are moving forward", Murphy said.

"He says he's fine, and he was concerned about everyone else instead of how he is - but that's just how he is". On the Facebook page for his campaign, Goldstein wrote, "Thank you all for your concern, well wishes, thoughts and prayers".

Goldstein is among eight candidates competing in the Democratic primary to replace Lisa Madigan as attorney general.
