Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Mayor Oscar Goodman spoke with Action News Saturday morning, and confirmed one of his sons was attacked in a park in early December.  

Eric Goodman is one of three sons of Mayor Carolyn Goodman and former mayor Oscar Goodman. He is a Justice of the Peace currently serving a six-year term.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police confirmed in a press release that Judge Goodman appeared to have suffered a head injury on Dec. 15.

He was found unconscious in a men's restroom in South Tower Park in Summerlin after leaving his nearby home to go jogging.

Goodman said his son is making a remarkable and miraculous recovery, and he was looking forward to having him over to his place in a couple of days to watch football.

The city released the following statement on behalf of 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."

Police said Judge Goodman's injuries have prevented him from helping provide information. They are still investigating and are asking for the public's help to find out what happened to the judge that day.
