Battery reported at Evanston Township High School

Officers responded to a fight Friday morning between two Evanston Township High School students, police said.

A 15-year-old bumped into a 17-year-old student, and the two began to exchange words, Evanston police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.

The 15-year-old then hit the other student five or six times in the body and the face, Parrott said. The 17-year-old sustained minor cuts on his hand and reported that the other student pulled out a small knife, Parrott said.

Detectives are investigating the incident at the school, 1600 Dodge Ave., and an arrest is pending, Parrott said.

Car stolen after Evanston home burglarized

An Evanston home was burglarized between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, police said.

Police responded to a reported burglary in the 200 block of Elmwood Avenue, Parrott said.

A 58-year-old woman woke up to find her rear door ajar and window open, Parrott said. The door was locked prior to the incident. Police believe that the point of entry was the unlocked window, Parrott said.

The woman discovered her 32-inch TV, laptop computer and purse missing, Parrott said. The purse contained the woman’s wallet, $50 in cash, credit cards, a driver’s license and keys.

The woman also discovered her 2002 gray Honda CR-V missing, Parrott said.

No arrests have been made in connection with the incident.
