Unknown suspect threw objects at woman in car 

A Skokie woman was driving when she was hit with objects by a man in another car, police said.

The woman was driving out of a gas station on the corner of Dempster Street and McCormick Boulevard on Saturday when a vehicle drove up next to her and the driver began yelling at her, police said. According to the woman, the suspect then threw his drink at her car, along with coins and other objects, police said.

Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said the license plate on the offender’s car has been identified.

Seven incidents of graffiti related to same gang

Multiple cases of graffiti sprayed within a few blocks of each other are all gang-related, police said.

The seven separate incidents happened late Saturday night and early Sunday morning on Cleveland Street, Hartrey Avenue, Madison Place and Washington Street, police said.

Police believe the graffiti was done by members of the Gangster Disciples, Parrott said.
