Television stolen from Evanston home

A 50-inch television was stolen from a central Evanston home early Saturday morning, police said.

The 22-year-old man who owns the home in the 1100 block of Foster Street, woke up on the couch and observed a man inside his residence, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. He confronted the person and told him to leave the apartment, Dugan said. After returning inside he noticed the television missing, police said.

There were no signs of forced entry into the home, Dugan added.

Park shelter defaced

Police discovered a defaced park shelter in north Evanston on Wednesday afternoon.

The wall of one of the park shelters at Leahy Park in the 1100 block of Lincoln Street was covered in blue and black ink, Dugan said. The writing said “FhWEBSh helos,” and Dugan said he was unsure of what the graffiti meant.
