(Newser) – A mugger stole a Chicago-area man’s tacos and nothing else on Sunday. The victim was walking back to his car carrying 16 tacos from a restaurant when he was cornered by a man in a black ski mask brandishing a machete. The mugger demanded the food but didn’t ask for anything else, then got in a car and drove off with his ill-gotten dinner, NBC Chicago reports.
