Man arrested in connection with obscenity

Police arrested a Palatine, Illinois man Friday in connection with obscenity.

The man showed a pornographic video on his phone Oct. 9 to his coworkers while at his place of work, Evanston police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.

The man was arrested after an investigation into the allegations, police said. The man’s coworkers reported him for showing an obscene video in public, Parrott said.

The man was charged with a misdemeanor obscenity, police said.

Multiple vehicles burglarized on Seward Street

Three burglaries from motor vehicles occurred late Friday night and early Saturday morning, police said.

The series of burglaries from vehicles in the 1600 and 1700 blocks of Seward Street appears to be connected, police said.

An MP3 player was taken from a 2009 Honda in the 1700 block of Seward Street, Parrott said. The 50-year-old female whose MP3 player was stolen said her doors were locked, but there was no sign of forced entry, Parrott said.

In another incident, a Garmin GPS, cell phone charger and loose change belonging to a 28-year-old male was taken from a 2013 Ford Focus in the 1600 block of Seward Street. There was no sign of forced entry, Parrott said.

A pair of sunglasses was taken from a Toyota Camry belonging to a 68-year-old female. The sunglasses and its case were later recovered a short distance away, police said.
