Evanston resident’s home damaged by suspected juveniles

An Evanston resident reported damage to her house and vehicle Monday, police said.

The woman heard a loud noise at 9 p.m. Sunday night and her dog started barking, but she did not investigate further, Evanston Police Cmdr. Tom Guenther said.

Monday morning, the resident found glass on her living room sofa and floor from a broken front window. The object used to break the window was not found, police said.

The woman’s white Chevrolet van also had mud smeared on it, Guenther said.

The woman suspects the incident may be related to her daughter, police said.

The case will likely be referred to the juvenile bureau, Guenther said. Police have no leads in case of stolen U-Haul trailer on Monday
