    A Cell Phone & $5.00

    Former "Idol" Robbed at Gunpoint

    Filed under: American Idol

    LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Former "American Idol" contestant Mikalah Gordon was "in a panic" but was not physically harmed after being robbed at gunpoint in Las Vegas, her mother said Thursday.

    Gordon, 18, was roughed up by robbers who accosted her and a male friend about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday on a sidewalk in a neighborhood about seven miles northwest of the Las Vegas Strip, said her mother, Victoria Cavaricci. "She's not physically harmed, but she's in a panic," Cavaricci told The Associated Press in a brief telephone interview from her Las Vegas home.
    Cavaricci said the robbers got away with a cell phone and $5.

    Las Vegas police confirmed the robbery occurred and they were investigating.
    Gordon reached the finals of the 2005 "American Idol" competition. She graduated from a Las Vegas high school and now lives in Los Angeles, where she is pursuing an entertainment career.

    Cavaricci said her daughter was "scarred and scared" and unable to talk with a reporter early Thursday.
    She said she had not canceled a scheduled appearance to sing this weekend at a benefit for children with cancer in Orange County, Calif.

    Hope she's not too shook up...wandering around Las Vegas at 3:30 A.M. sounds pretty risky!..

    a neighborhood about seven miles northwest of the Las Vegas Strip,
    For any of you guys familiar with LV, what is this area and why would anyone be in that area wandering at that time of day? I'm not questioning her right to do that, just curious.

    My wife frequents the GreekSpeak and Constantine Boards (), and this has appeared there as well. I know nothing of the neighborhood, of course, but evidently the and she had just left a recording studio. I guess you schedule the time when you can get it.

    Would seem a call to cab company and a ride home way safer that time of day (night).

    More than likely she and sheep companion wore those large - easy-to-read labels saying ''victim'' - available for robbing.!!

    Well, even though I live here in the Las Vegas valley, I rarely watch TV local news nor even get the local fishwrapper here, so I didnt hear about this item, but, 7 miles Northwest, that would put it around the Summerlin area, which is "upper class" area (they think so that is), but anymore, gangs are in every neighborhood. Some are real hardcore gangbangers and some are wannbee's. PD estimate over 5000 bangers here now, and growing everyday. Alot of High School gangs here also. Into extortion of fellow students for their "milk money", etc.
