Police arrest Chicago man in connection with home invasion

Police arrested a Chicago man Tuesday in connection with home invasion, police said.

The man, 19, forced entry into a residence in the 2200 block of Oakton Street by forcing open a window and unlocking the door, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. He entered at about 3 p.m. with a group of several other teens, police said. After entering, the man punched a one of the residents, a teenager, in the face. The boy sustained injuries on his face and arm, and it is unknown if he required medical treatment, Parrott said.

The incident is connected to an ongoing dispute between “numerous individuals,” Parrott said. Multiple teenagers were also arrested and are being detained at the Cook County Juvenile Detention Center.

The Chicago man is scheduled to appear in court June 11.

Chicago woman charged with obstructing justice after car crash

Officers arrested a Chicago woman Wednesday after she provided false information to police following an Evanston car crash.

The woman crashed her car Sunday in the 1000 block of Ridge Avenue and was transported to a hospital for observation, Parrott said. The woman pretended to be a relative with a similar name. The woman has been charged with obstructing justice, and there will likely be subsequent charges filed in the case, Parrott said.
