Police: Fla. congressional candidate robbed
Question of the Day
MIAMI (AP) — Police in North Miami say a Democratic congressional candidate was robbed at gunpoint Saturday while waiting to make a campaign appearance at a church.
Police Lt. Neal Cuevas said that the candidate, Marleine Bastien, was in a car Saturday with her sister outside the Church of the Living God when another car pulled up along side them. A man got out, opened the driver’s door and demanded the women give him their purses and threatened to kill them.
Lt. Cuevas said the man then took off. Investigators believe he was involved in a similar robbery 30 minutes earlier.
Ms. Bastien is one of four Haitian-born candidates running in a Democratic primary next week for an open House seat in a South Florida district.
