Evanston resident’s clothes intentionally damaged

An Evanston woman told police someone poured bleach on her clothing and left the clothes in her backyard Monday.

The 32-year-old woman, who lives in the 1500 block of McDaniel Avenue near Evanston Township High School, had a previous personal “incident” with a neighbor in her building, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said.

She left some of her clothing in the communal laundry room Monday afternoon and later found the clothing items scattered throughout the backyard with bleach poured on them, Dugan added.

Cars damaged near Evanston Park

Two cars were damaged with rocks in the same block in south Evanston on Saturday and Monday, police said.

The first car, a 2003 Saturn, was damaged Saturday evening. The owner, a 57-year-old Villa Park resident, left his car parked in a lot in the 2300 block of Oakton Street and when he returned discovered damage to the top of the vehicle, hood and windshield, Dugan said.

On Monday afternoon, someone damaged the second car, a 1999 Toyota owned by a 52-year-old Chicago man. The car, which was parked in the same lot as the Saturn, had a cracked windshield. Police found numerous rocks on the ground around the vehicle, Dugan said.
