A 24-year-old TCF Bank employee was arrested Monday evening in connection with fraud after he allegedly stole more than $3,000 from a customer’s account.

Police were called at about 5:30 p.m. to TCF Bank in Jewel Osco at 1128 Chicago Ave., where they found that the bank’s internal investigator had taken an employee into custody for fraud, said Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan. The employee, a Chicago man, had made a total of seven withdrawals totaling $3,200 from the customer’s account since August, Dugan said. The employee had filled out withdrawal slips by faking the person’s signature.

The employee was charged with a felony for fraud.

Woman arrested after screaming obscenities at neighbor

A 48-year-old woman was arrested Monday morning in connection with violating a no-contact order when she yelled obscenities at her neighbor who filed the order, police said.

A 35-year-old woman living in the 200 block of Custer Avenue called police at about 9:30 a.m. to report that her neighbor violated a no-contact order filed about one week ago, Dugan said. The younger woman videotaped her neighbor sticking her head out of the back door of her home while screaming at her.

The police department has received multiple calls for conflicts between the neighbors, Dugan said. The younger woman told police the older woman had been harassing her on an ongoing basis.

The woman who violated the no-contact order is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 21.
