Man hit in Evanston with unknown object Tuesday

A 33-year-old man was transported to the hospital Tuesday after he was hit in the head with an unknown object, police said.

Police responded just after 9 a.m. on Tuesday to Saint Mary Catholic Church, 1012 Lake St., where they found a man bleeding from his head, Evanston police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.

The man said he was riding his bike northbound on Ridge Avenue when he was struck with an unknown object, police said.

Although the 33-year-old said he saw two people walking behind him who he knew, he is not sure who hit him with the object, Parrott said.

The man sustained a large cut above his eyebrow, police said. Paramedics, who were already on the scene when police responded, transported the man to Evanston Hospital, 2650 Ridge Ave., for treatment.

Detectives will follow up on the incident to investigate, police said.

IPhone taken from Evanston Public Library

A library employee had her phone taken Tuesday night, police said.

The 56-year-old woman told police her phone was stolen from the children’s section of the Evanston Public Library, 1703 Orrington Ave., where she works, Parrott said. The phone was taken between 6:20 p.m. and 6:40 p.m., he said.

The phone is described as an iPhone 4 in a red and black striped case, police said.

Police do not have any suspects, Parrott said.
