Two Chicago men mugged Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s teenage son right across the street from the Emanuel family home on Friday night, and gave the high school senior a bloody lip and a chipped tooth to boot.
“Yesterday evening, Mayor Emanuel’s 17 year old son Zach was assaulted in a robbery during which his phone was stolen,” Kelley Quinn said. “He sustained injuries that required medical treatment but was able to join the family for a long planned trip. The mayor’s focus is on his son’s well-being.”
Emanuel’s son, Zach, had stepped outside and across the street from the residence to make a mobile phone call. The two men approached the teen, forcibly examined the contents of his pockets and stole his phone.
There was a brief struggle over the phone. That’s when the fat lip and the chipped tooth happened.
The Chicago Sun-Times that neither assailant used any weapons.
