Evanston woman resists arrest, flees police

A 24-year-old woman was arrested Tuesday morning in connection with violating a no-contact order and resisting arrest.

On Sept. 22 around 10:45 a.m., the Evanston resident allegedly visited the workplace of a woman who had filed a no-contact order against her, said Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan. The workplace is located in the 2100 block of Green Bay Road. The 24-year-old woman then threatened the employee verbally, Dugan said.

Police said the woman showed up to the police station shortly after the incident to say she was not aware of the no-contact order against her, which was enacted in July. When the police attempted to arrest her, she fled the station but was then taken into custody in the 1400 block of Elmwood Avenue and charged with two misdemeanors for violating her no-contact order and resisting arrest, Dugan said.

Dugan said police do not know the relationship between the two women.

Man with knife robs older man

A man bearing a knife robbed a 75-year-old man Tuesday night.

The older man was leaving the back entrance of a retail store in the 900 block of Chicago Avenue at about 5 p.m. when he was confronted by a man who displayed a knife and demanded his black, hooded sweatshirt, Dugan said.

A half of a bottle of prescription Prozac was in the man’s stolen sweatshirt, Dugan said.
