CHICAGO — A spokeswoman for Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel says the mayor's 17-year-old son was mugged near the family's home.

Spokeswoman Kelley Quinn said Saturday that the mayor's son, Zach, had "injuries that required medical treatment, but was able to join the family for a long planned trip." She says the mayor is focused on his son's well-being and requested the news media respect the family's privacy.

The mayor and his family were headed for a vacation in Chile this weekend.

Chicago Police spokesman Thomas Sweeney didn't name the victim but says police are investigating an attack Friday night near the mayor's home. He says two males grabbed the victim, took his phone and fled.

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