First NY Knicks center Eddy Curry, then Miami Heat forward Antoine Walker, and now Illinois RB Rashard Mendenhall, robbed at gunpoint in Chicago. What is it with Chicago, Illinois? This wouldn't happen if Barack Obama represented--nah, never mind.

Steelers new running back Mendenhall robbed at gunpoint

Updated: May 5, 2008, 8:17 PM ET

Another famous Chicago athlete was victimized early Monday morning.

Pittsburgh Steelers first-round draft choice Rashard Mendenhall was robbed at gunpoint while walking along the city's lakefront, his agent and mother said.

The former Illinois running back was with another companion along the South Side walkway when he was robbed of his wallet, phone and cash, sources familiar with the investigation told the Chicago Sun-Times.

"It was obviously a scary moment," his agent Mike McCartney said, according to the Sun-Times. "But he is fine. He is doing great. He said he doesn't have anything that is worth his life."

Reports said the two alleged perpetrators wore black hoodies and ski masks.
