Evanston woman allegedly threatens other woman

A 19-year-old woman allegedly verbally threatened a 28-year-old woman, said Evanston Police Department spokesman Cmdr. Jay Parrott.

The dispute occurred at about 9:30 p.m. Monday in front of a residence in the 1800 block of Ashland Avenue. The women, both Evanston residents, were arguing about a relative of the 19-year-old, Parrott said.

“Could be a little drama,” Parrott said.

The 19-year-old fled the scene before police arrived.

Graffiti found on sign

Some “indiscernible writing” was found scribbled on a “No Thru Traffic” sign Monday in the 1000 block of Florence Avenue, Parrott said. The culprit used a blue marker and has not yet been identified by police.
