Man arrested in connection with public urination outside middle school

Police arrested an Evanston man in connection with urinating outside of a middle school, police said.

Officers arrested the 47-year-old man in the rear of the parking lot at Chute Middle School, 1400 Oakton St., at around 6:44 p.m. Tuesday, Evanston police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.

The man was charged with public indecency, police said.

Parents and children were walking around the school at the time, but it is unclear if any of them saw the man urinating, Parrott said.

Two men attempt to steal vehicle parts

An Evanston woman saw two people trying to steal parts from her vehicle Thursday, police said.

Two unknown people attempted to saw off a muffler assembly on a 2001 Chevrolet between 8:50 a.m. and 9 a.m., Parrott said.

The people fled in a beige van southbound on Custer Avenue when the car owner caught them trying to steal the parts, Parrott said.

Police responded to the incident in the 600 block of Mulford Street, but were unable to find the two suspects, Parrott said.

Police believe the suspects were attempting to steal the car’s catalytic converter for the precious metals inside, Parrott said.

No arrests have been made in connection with the incident.
