Teen Charged in Mugging of Rahm Emanuel’s Son

A juvenile was charged in the robbery and assault of the son of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

The alleged attacker of Zach Emanuel was arrested Saturday, the Chicago Sun Times reported. His name is not being made public because he is under 18. He confessed to the crime and was charged as a juvenile with robbery and aggravated battery in the public way, police told the Sun Times.

Zach Emanuel, 17, the son of Chicago’s first Jewish mayor, was put in a chokehold and robbed of his cellphone up the street from his Chicago home on Dec. 17. He was treated for cuts and bruises by a doctor who visited his home. His tooth also was chipped.

Rahm Emanuel, a former aide in the Obama and Clinton administrations, is running for reelection.
