Evanston man discovers punctured truck tire, angry note

The tire of an Evanston man’s pickup truck was punctured Monday, police said.

After parking his 1994 Chevrolet in the 800 block of Reba Place overnight, the 45-year-old man discovered a profanity-filled note on the windshield, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. The note may have been prompted by the man’s vehicle taking more than one parking space, Parrott added.

There are no suspects at this time, Parrott said.

Graffiti reported at Lawrence O Lawson Park

Graffiti was reported Monday at Lawrence O Lawson Park, 2600 Sheridan Road, police said.

Parrott said the vandalism was not gang-related, and incidents of gang graffiti are becoming less frequent.
