Chicago police have yet to catch two men who robbed Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s son.

The incident happened just after 10 p.m. Friday.

Zach Emanuel, 17, was on his cellphone outside the family home on the 4200 block of North Hermitage in Ravenswood, when he was confronted by two men.

One put him in a chokehold, while the other punched him and gave him a fat lip.

According to a police report, the men patted him down and stole his cell phone, making him punch in the security code before they took off with it.

The teenager was treated for cuts and bruises on his face by a personal physician at the Emanuel home.
