Police blotter: Vehicle damaged by BB gun on Brummel Street

Ben Winck, Assistant City Editor

Police are investigating a case in which a vehicle was shot with a BB gun between Tuesday and Thursday afternoon in south Evanston.

The vehicle’s owner, a 51-year-old man, parked his car at about 9 p.m. on Tuesday and returned to it at about 7:30 p.m. on Thursday to find his windshield damaged with small holes, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. The damage was likely done by a BB gun, he said. The vehicle is a 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan.

The charge depends on the cost of the damage done to the windshield, Dugan said. There are no suspects.

Front window damaged on Case Street

A window was damaged in south Evanston on Thursday afternoon.

Officers were dispatched to the 700 block of Case Street at about 7:50 p.m. after a 50-year-old man reported two unknown subjects had broken the frame of one of his front storm windows. The homeowner was in his living room when the damage was done, and he said he had seen two men with a basketball walking eastward on Case Street, Dugan said.

The charge depends on the damage to the window, but it will likely be a misdemeanor, Dugan said.
