Chicago Police announced Saturday night that charges have been filed against a juvenile who confessed to the Dec. 19 mugging of Mayor Rahm Emanuel‘s son Zach.

The 17-year-old Zach Emanuel was mugged and robbed a few doorways down and across the street from his family’s well guarded home in Ravenswood, on the North Side of Chicago.

The mugger stole Zach’s cellphone and chipped his front tooth. According to Mayor Emanuel, his son was on a call to his college counselor when he was attacked.

A spokesman for the mayor said he was grateful to the police for the arrest:

“The mayor and Amy (his wife) are grateful to the dedicated men and women of the Chicago Police Department for their hard work, and they would like to thank everyone who shared kind thoughts and wishes for their son’s well being, ” he said.

According to the initial police report, two people approached Zach from behind as he was walking and talking on his cellphone. Then one of them “placed his arm around the victim’s neck in a bear chokehold.” The other man punched Zach in the face and knocked him to the ground.

So they’re still looking for the second guy, apparently.

And no one’s been reporting on what happened to Zach’s chipped tooth.

Stay tuned.
