Resident finds intruder in her apartment

A resident encountered an intruder in her residence in the 1100 block of Monroe Street on Wednesday.

The resident was suspicious when she saw an acquaintance, who lives in the neighborhood, looking in her direction when she and her caregiver were leaving to go shopping, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. The acquaintance seemed to be waiting for her car to leave, he said.

The resident and her caregiver drove around the block then returned to the resident’s apartment, where they encountered the intruder. The apartment was unlocked. The intruder fled without taking anything, Dugan said.

The resident described the burglar as a 6-foot tall man appearing to be 18 to 20 years old.
