Evanston juvenile attacked

A 16-year-old Evanston boy was attacked by four teenagers in the 1800 block of Dodge Avenue on Saturday.

The teenagers, all either 15 or 16 years old, approached the teen and his friend and demanded the friend’s bike, said Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott. When they refused, the teens allegedly struck the victim multiple times in the face and fled the scene by foot. The victim was not treated for medical conditions on scene, and no one has been arrested so far, Parrott said.

Burglars slash window screen

The home of a 26-year-old Evanston resident was broken into through a slashed kitchen window screen sometime last week.

The break-in occurred in the 200 block of Callan Avenue sometime between 5 p.m. on Oct. 2 and 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Parrott said. The burglar entered through the window and stole reporting equipment estimated to be worth about $1,300, Parrott said.
