Report: Google to open first flagship retail store in Chicago

Tech giant Google is reportedly planning its first brick-and-mortar retail shop.

The Chicago Tribune reported that, according to unnamed sources, the flagship store is expected to open in Chicago’s Fulton Market District, close to the company’s city headquarters.

Google has finalized the property lease, the Tribune reported, but the company has not yet confirmed plans for long-term shops.

“We don’t comment on rumor or speculation,” Google spokeswoman Kayla Conti told the Tribune.

The building will reportedly be 14,000 square feet of multiple two-story brick buildings.

Tech experts believe the retail shop would prominently feature the company’s growing bundle of electronic products, including smartphones, home security systems and more.

With the new store, Google would join other tech giants with flagship locations, such as Apple, Amazon and Microsoft.

But if Google cancels its plans, it wouldn’t be the first time. In 2015, Crain’s New York Business reported that the company abandoned plans to open a store in New York.

A prominent #MeToo activist and Harvey Weinstein accuser recently agreed to pay $380,000 to settle a sexual assault complaint against her, according to a new report.

The New York Times reported Sunday that actress Asia Argento, who said last year that Weinstein raped her in 1997, settled a claim by former child star Jimmy Bennett, now 22.

In a notice of intent to sue that Bennett filed shortly after Argento, 42, went public with her Weinstein allegations in October, Bennett claimed Argento sexually assaulted him in 2013, when he was 17, the Times reported. The alleged incident occurred in a hotel room in California, where the age of consent is 18.

Weinstein's attorney, Benjamin Brafman, said in a statement released Monday to CNN that the reported settlement shows "a stunning level of hypocrisy by Asia Argento."

"What is perhaps most egregious is the timing,” Brafman said. According to the Times, Bennett’s notice of intent to sue was sent to Argento in November, one month after she went public with her allegations against Weinstein.

"An unidentified party" sent the Times documents related to the case, including a selfie of Bennett and Argento in bed, the newspaper reported, adding that "three people familiar with the case" had confirmed the documents' authenticity.

The complaint said Bennett was traumatized by the incident, which "hindered [his] work and income and threatened his mental health," the Times reported. Bennett, who starred in a 2004 movie with Argento and played her character's son, had viewed their bond as a "mother-son relationship," the complaint said.

The Times also reported that celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, who met Argento in 2016 and began dating her, helped her "navigate the matter." Bourdain committed suicide in June.

Bennett declined to comment on the Times' piece, and Argento did not return requests for comment, the newspaper reported.

Officers were called just after midnight Saturday to the emergency room at Golden Valley Memorial Hospital. A woman with severe injuries had been dropped off at the hospital by a man who told staff that they had been robbed. However, the victim told police that she was actually attacked by the man, identified as 39-year-old Michael Pullums, of Country Club Hills, Illinois.

Authorities said the woman had met Pullums online and started a relationship with him. He was in Clinton on Saturday to visit her, according to police.

Officials said that while at her home, the victim and Pullums got into an argument that escalated into a physical confrontation.

“The man stabbed her several times with a knife and a pair of scissors and then (he) strangled her,” police said Monday in a news release.

After the attack started the woman played dead, hoping to create an opening to flee from Pullums, authorities said. She tried to run outside to escape the attack, but officials said Pullums caught her behind her home and beat her with a metal chair.

“Only when he heard sirens, which turned out to be from a passing ambulance, did he stop his attack on her,” police said.

Pullums loaded the woman into her vehicle and drove her to the emergency room, where he told staff they had been robbed, officials said. He left the hospital in the victim’s vehicle, according to police.

He was arrested a few hours later after deputies in Warren County, Missouri, spotted the victim’s car headed back to Illinois. Police said Pullums was still covered in the victim’s blood when deputies found him.

He was arrested on charges of first-degree domestic violence with serious physical injury.

Alejandra Suarez, 26, of Gainesville, is in the Hall County Jail on a charge of second-degree cruelty to children, sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Scott Ware said Monday in an emailed statement.

Just after 8 p.m. Aug. 13, Suarez realized her oversight and called 911, according to the sheriff’s office.

“She stated that she had dropped off her other two children at their grandmother’s home, and the third child had apparently fallen asleep in the car,” Ware said in the statement. “Ms. Suarez departed the grandmother’s home without realizing this and did not discover the child until sometime after she had already been back at home.”

Deputies found the child at the grandmother’s residence in the 2300 block of 4th Street in the Chicopee Village area of Gainesville. He was taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center as a precaution and released.

“The child,” Ware said, “is in good physical condition.”

Woman chases down man she said recorded daughter change in store's dressing room

A Utah woman wasn’t going to let the man she said was trying to record her daughter who was trying on clothes in a store’s changing room get away.

Police said the woman chased down Jorge Leon-Alfaro after witnesses said the 36-year-old man was trying to record the woman’s daughter from a changing room next to the teen at a Rue 21 in Salt Lake City, KSTU reported.

The mother recorded the man, and the comments she made to him, as they waited for police. 

The woman called him a predator, saying, “This right here is what a predator looks like. I caught this guy underneath my daughter’s stall while she was changing at Rue 21.”

She warned Leon-Alfaro that she was going to make sure people knew what she said he did, KSTU reported.

“Not today, buddy Not today,” the mother said. “I’m going to make sure your face gets out, so that you’re not in any more stalls, looking under little girls dressing.” 

The video was uploaded to Facebook where it has been watched millions of times. 

Police attribute people being aware of what was happening for being able to arrest Leon-Alfaro who now faces felony charges of voyeurism of a child under 14, KSTU reported.
