Right Across the Street
A quick-thinking clerk at a Loop Office Depot used her store microphone to alert customers and fellow workers that she was being robbed, and the robber ran out the door empty-handed today, police said.
The robber then ducked into a subway station and minutes later entered a Fannie May Candies shop across from City Hall, where he displayed a gun wrapped in a newspaper and made off with $350.
The man escaped in a cab and was still at large this afternoon. No one was hurt in either hold-up.
The Sun Times calls it a "Loop candy store," completely ignoring the fact that it's across from the seat of city government. Can't have the Olympic committee thinking it isn't safe.
