Talk about bizarre news. Pittsburgh police are currently investigating a robbery that took place inside the hotel room of Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, officers were dispatched to Chapman’s Omni William Penn hotel room at 10:12 p.m. Tuesday night while he was still at the ballpark for the Reds-Pirates game. Upon arrival, they discovered a 26-year-old woman tied up and crying. Hotel security said that two guests alerted them of the woman screaming for help, which is why they called the police. According to the police report, the woman was “the hotel guest of a male who attended the Pirates baseball game and who was not present at the time of the incident.” The woman said she heard a knock at the door and the person on the other side claimed to be from hotel maintenance and said he needed to fix the toilet. When she let him in, she says he tied her up and took her jewelry, clothing, credit card, ID card, and a computer. Maybe I’m missing something, but what was the hotel guest of a man who attended the Pirates-Reds game doing in Chapman’s hotel room. If she wasn’t Chapman’s guest, whose guest was she? I suppose that is all part of the investigation. H/T Hardball Talk
