Three arrested Sunday in connection with disturbance

Police arrested three people on Sunday, one in connection with obstruction of justice, authorities said.

Officers responded around 3 a.m. to reports of a disturbance in an alley in the 600 block of Mulford Street, Evanston police spokesman Perry Polinski said. When police arrived at the scene, officers encountered a woman and a man arguing, with a third person present, officials said.

Police arrested the 49-year-old man after asking for his identification and discovering he had a warrant out for his arrest in connection with an aggravated assault in North Dakota, Polinski said.

When police tried to identify the third person, the man was unable to provide any identification and gave officers an alias name, Polinski said. The man offered to bring officers to his apartment in the 200 block of Callan Avenue and show them his proper identification, police said.

Police went to the residence with the man and encountered a 23-year-old woman, who also gave police an alias, Polinski said.

While at the apartment, the man, 26, broke away from officers and led police on a short foot chase. Officers apprehended the DeKalb, Illinois resident in the 200 block of Custer Avenue shortly after 4 a.m. on Sunday, police said.

Police were able to correctly identify him and charged him with felony obstruction of justice, authorities said.

Officers also arrested the 23-year-old woman inside the apartment and charged her with misdemeanor obstructing identification, police said.
