Parked car’s window broken

The window of a vehicle was broken in north Evanston late Thursday night, police said.

The owner of the car, a 21-year-old Morton Grove resident, left his vehicle parked in the 1800 block of Central Street. Late that night, another man called police to report someone looking through the broken front passenger window of the 1995 Chevrolet, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. The man who was looking through the window fled the scene, he said.

Police don’t know if anything was taken from the car, Dugan added.

Graffiti painted on garage door of home

Gang-related graffiti was painted on the garage door of a residence in Evanston on Wednesday, police said.

A crown and the letters “SGDK” were painted near a residence in the 1200 block of Pitner Avenue, Dugan said. Officers believe the graffiti is gang-related and painted in a manner that indicates disrespect to multiple gangs.
