Chicago woman reports battery in Evanston workplace

A 43-year-old Chicago resident reported a case of battery in the workplace Tuesday.

The injured woman claimed that her co-worker hurt her at 10 a.m. in their office building located in the 600 block of Church Street, said Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott.

The woman said her co-worker’s right shoulder struck her left shoulder while they walked past each other. The woman told police that her head and upper back hit the wall and that she has suffered whiplash. There were no witnesses to the incident, and Parrott said it is doubtful that the co-worker will be charged.

A man allegedly stole more than $500 worth of items from an Evanston woman’s apartment Tuesday, Parrott said.

The theft happened between noon and 10:30 p.m. Tuesday in the woman’s apartment in the 100 block of Clyde Avenue. Parrott said the woman, 44, knew the man and that the two resided together at one point. The 40-year-old man in question allegedly stole a DVD player, 40 DVDs, an Apple iPod, a space heater appliance, dining chair furniture, a set of linens and other miscellaneous items, the resident reported to police.
