LAS VEGAS -- City of Las Vegas officials confirm Mayor Carolyn Goodman's son, Eric, is recovering from serious injuries sustained during an assault in mid-December.

Police sources previously told 8 News Now that the Goodman's other son, Ross, was injured. That information previously reported, online and in the Friday 11 p.m. broadcast, was incorrect.

Sources tell the I-Team, the incident stems from a Dec. 15 attack that left Goodman's son unconscious in a bathroom at South Tower Park with injuries to his head. The park is located near West Charleston Boulevard and the 215. Goodman had gone for a jog.

Because of Goodman's injuries, police said they were not able to gain any leads in the case. They have reached out to the public in hopes that someone may have seen something that could be helpful to the investigation.

8 News Now received the following statement from a representative with the Goodman family:

"One of our sons suffered a traumatic injury. He received the best of care at University Medical Center. He is now in a rehabilitation center and doing very well. The family asks that our privacy is respected through his recovery." 

Eric Goodman is an attorney and Las Vegas Justice of the Peace. Ross Goodman, Eric's brother, told the I-Team Saturday that he's been at his brother's side since the attack. He says the family has no idea who attacked his brother while jogging.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The original article named the other son, Ross, as the victim of the attack. We apologize for the error.
