Aroldis Chapman has had one strange season so far, even if you don't take into consideration any of his outstanding season on the field. Away from his 0.000 ERA and 44 strikeouts in just 26 innings, he's been sued, arrested and now robbed.
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Chapman's hotel room at the Omni William Penn was robbed Tuesday night while Chapman and the Reds were playing the Pirates at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. In addition to the robbery, police found a 26-year-old woman tied up and crying.
Two guests at the hotel heard a woman screaming for help and then saw a woman inside an open room with her hands bound by cloth napkins, according to the news release from Pittsburgh police.
The woman was identified as "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 release said.
The woman told police a man claimed to be from the hotel's maintenance department and was there to fix a toilet. When she let the man in the room, he demanded items from the room, and when she declined, he tied her up and took jewelry, clothing, a computer, credit cards and ID cards.
The Reds released the following statement:
We are aware of the hotel room robbery of one of our players and are working with local law enforcement agencies. Because it is an active police investigation, we have no other comment at this time.
