Evanston police arrested a Florida woman in connection with a battery Friday afternoon, according to an EPD news release.

Officers responded to a disturbance call in the 1600 block of Simpson Street and observed the 31-year-old striking another woman in the face, Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. A third woman tried to aid the attacked woman, and the attacker punched her. Police then took the attacker into custody.

Paramedics from the Evanston Fire Department arrived to treat the two women who were attacked.

The Florida woman, charged with two counts of battery, is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 9.

Burglar stole laptop and camera

A burglar broke into a house in the 1700 block of Oakton Street and took more than $500 worth of property Friday night, according to an EPD news release.

The unidentified suspect stole a Sony laptop, a Nikon camera and jewelry.

Police found footprints that led from the burglarized house to the garage of another residence, which reported a missing Diamondback mountain bicycle.
