The day – ‘Hazard!’ Champion Amy Schneider robbed in Oakland

OAKLAND, California – Reigning Jeopardy! Champion Amy Schneider was robbed at gunpoint on New Years weekend in Oakland, California.

Oakland resident Schneider tweeted the robbery to her 52,000 followers, saying she was confused but otherwise fine.

“Hello everyone! So first of all: I’m fine. But I was robbed yesterday, lost my ID, my credit cards and my phone. Then I couldn’t really sleep last night and dragged myself around all day to replace everything” said the Oakland resident in her post.

Oakland police said in a statement they are still investigating the Sunday afternoon armed robbery and have not made any arrests.

Schneider, the first transgender candidate to qualify for the Tournament of Champions, won the show again Tuesday, bringing her impressive streak to 25 straight wins and $ 897,600 in winnings to date.

The game show issued a statement stating, “We were deeply saddened to hear about this incident and have contacted Amy privately to offer our help in any way we can.”
