Missouri Governor-elect Eric Greitens reported last night via Facebook that his wife was robbed at gunpoint as she left a restaurant near their home in St. Louis. Thankfully everyone is safe, but “shaken”:


From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

The robbery happened shortly after 6 p.m. near Cafe Ventana, a restaurant just west of the campus of St. Louis University.

Sheena Greitens was sitting inside her vehicle in the parking lot of the restaurant when her car door was suddenly opened by a suspect, police said.

The suspect pointed a gun at Greitens and demanded her property, police said. Greitens gave the suspect her laptop and cellphone.

Police later arrested 3 teenagers in connection with the attack:

Greitens, who is a former Navy SEAL, defeated Democrat Chris Koster 51%-45% on election day:
