Amid rising crime in the Big Apple, one of Mayor Eric Adams’ aides was mugged in broad daylight Tuesday while scouting a location in Brooklyn for a planned visit by Hizzoner, law-enforcement sources told The Post.
The brazen caper took place even though the victim, a civilian member of Adam’s advance team, cautioned that he was a well-connected City Hall employee, a high-ranking police source said.
The article goes on to state the following:
The incident began when the victim — Manhattan resident Christopher Baugh, 33 — refused to turn over his wallet and cellphone, telling the robbers, “Get out of my way,” cops said.
“You don’t want to do this. I work for the mayor,” Adams’ aide told the robbers, both described as Black males.
However, that didn’t deter them at all. Instead, one of the thugs lifted his shirt to show that he had a pistol tucked into his pants.
The thieves shoved him to the ground and went through Baugh’s pockets, stealing his city-issued phone, along with a wallet holding five credit cards, then fled the scene.
