A 35-year-old Evanston woman reported she was punched in the mouth Thursday afternoon following a dispute with an acquaintance over a money loan, police said.

The woman told police she happened upon the acquaintance, a 40-year-old Evanston woman, in the 1700 block of Dodge Avenue at approximately 12:05 p.m., said Evanston Police Department spokesman Perry Polinski. The women began to argue and, ultimately, the altercation turned physical, Polinski added.

The woman had minor facial injuries and did not go to a hospital, Polinski said.
