Chicago Police Arrest Alleged Mugger Who Attacked Mayor’s Son

CHICAGO (AP) — A juvenile has been charged in the December mugging of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s teenage son.

Police spokesman Martin Maloney told the Chicago Tribune the young suspect was arrested Saturday and charged as a juvenile with robbery and aggravated battery in the public way.

His age and name were not immediately released, the Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The attack occurred near the Emanuel family’s home. At the time, a spokeswoman for the mayor said his 17-year-old son, Zach, had injuries that required medical treatment.

A police report says one of the robbers put the teen in a chokehold and the second punched him, knocking him to the ground. The report says they took his cellphone and fled.

Emanuel, a former White House chief of staff, is running for re-election.
