The Cincinnati Reds have only spent two or three nights in Pittsburgh for their series against the Pittsburgh Pirates, but they're certainly having a wild series away from the diamond. First, infielder Todd Frazier saved a man who was choking in a Pittsburgh restaurant Tuesday. Now, flamethrowing reliever Aroldis Chapman's room has become a crime scene in a robbery in the Reds' hotel.â†µ
Officers who were dispatched to the hotel found a 26-year-old woman tied up and crying.â†µ
Security guards told officers that they were alerted by two guests who heard a woman screaming for help.â†µ
The guests, who were staying in a room on the same floor, went into the hallway to see what was going on found the woman with her hands bound by cloth napkins, police spokeswoman Diane Richard wrote in a news release.â†µ
She did not identify the woman, but said she was from Silver Springs, Md. and was "the hotel guest of a male who attended the Pirates baseball game and who was not present at the time of the incident. During this incident the male guest had various items taken and was later interviewed by detectives," the news release said.â†µ
I'm not yet sure why this woman was found in Chapman's room and not her own room, but I suppose that detail will trickle out eventually. In any case, Chapman wasn't present.â†µ
