Chicago Mayor Rahm’s Son Robbed Right In Front Of Family’s Home


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.
