Frank Sinatra's widow, her son and two friends were mugged in Beverly Hills Tuesday night and lost $17,000 in cash and valuables.

Barbara Marx Sinatra, 71, was walking to her home when three young men pulled up in a car and confronted the group, police said. The muggers showed no weapons, and no one was hurt.Barbara Sinatra and her son, Robert Marx, were walking with former "Laugh-In" producer George Schlatter and his wife.

"Mrs. Sinatra was quite shaken and unable to identify any of the assailants," Lt. Edward Kreins said. Marx and the Schlatters provided enough information for a composite sketch of the robbers, he said.
