Former Suns Star Kevin Johnson Robbed While Visiting San Francisco

Former Phoenix Suns star Kevin Johnson was robbed over the weekend during a visit to San Francisco. The theft occurred while Johnson, now the Mayor of Sacramento, was offering a helping hand to an elderly man.

In a recent blog post the former NBA star reported losing a suit, a pair of shoes and some personal items as a result of the robbery. Johnson was visiting San Francisco to attend a conference with representatives of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Johnson reportedly saw a man struggling to carry bags near Union Square on Saturday evening and set aside his belongings for less than a minute to put him in a taxi. When he turned back to get his things, they were gone.

Johnson joked about the incident to Sacramento's KCRA-TV. He said he plans to tell the story to San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom next time they meet and assure him that the same thing won't happen to Newsom when he comes to Sacramento.
