Police Blotter: Police investigate two home break-ins

Nora Shelly, City Editor

Police are investigating two home break-ins in Evanston that occurred between late Monday and early Tuesday.

A resident in the 1500 block of Judson Avenue observed Tuesday morning that the screen to the kitchen window was out of the window frame, a patio chair was underneath the window, and items that had previously been on the windowsill were knocked over, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said.

It does not appear the person was able to enter the residence, Dugan said.

A second break-in — this one successful — occurred in the 1400 block of Judson Avenue in the same timeframe. The 33-year-old resident of the home observed on Tuesday morning that his wallet was gone as well as a shoulder bag, which contained keys and work credentials.

There are no suspects at this time, although police believe the two incidents are related, Dugan said.

Police arrest woman in connection with domestic battery

Officers responded to a domestic battery call in downtown Evanston on Monday.

An 18-year-old Chicago woman was arrested in connection with the incident, in which a 20-year-old man was bit on the arm and hit with a radio in the 1600 block of Benson Avenue, Dugan said.

Evanston police charged the woman with misdemeanor domestic battery. The court date is set for Oct. 5.
