The teenage son of Mayor Rahm Emanuel was the victim of a robbery outside the mayor’s Lakeview home Friday night, a spokesperson from the mayor’s office confirms.
Police were called to the 4200 block of North Hermitage at 10:05 p.m. Friday for a report of a robbery on the street where there would normally already be a police presence.
Emanuel’s 17-year-old son went out to make a phone call when he was jumped by two men who stole the teen’s cell phone.
A police report obtained by the Chicago Tribune says that he was put in a chokehold by one of the suspects and punched in the face by the other. Emanuel reportedly suffered a fat lip and chipped tooth.

I really would love to give a dose of Schadenfreude, but I won’t visit the sins of the Father on the Son.
Now if it would have happened to the mayor himself….

Soooo… Where were his security detail???
I wish something like this would’ve happened to Richie Daley or one of his sons… That would’ve been AWESOME!!!
Glad the son is ok – never willing to wish harm to a parent’s child…
Wonder how much extra tax payer money will be spent now ramping up the security detail for the block his house is on…
From Second City Cop; There are already two or more parked in front, two or more parked in the alley, a heavy weapons car nearby, a roving patrol.
That’s the Mayors security detail and yet his kid was robbed right out on the street. That takes some bold thieves.
Bold thugs, but man – with all that personnel; were they all sleeping? Wow…
Just as well not to laugh at the kid’s misfortune. Given Rahm Emmanuel’s political leanings, he probably barely acknowledges his son at Christmas time.
