Nora Shelly, City Editor

A CVS employee was arrested Thursday after an altercation with another employee.

Officers were called to the store, 1711 Sherman Ave., just after midnight by two other employees, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. The employees reported the 22-year-old colleague had showed up to work late and appeared agitated. A 26-year-old colleague tried to calm him down, but the 22-year-old allegedly punched him several times in the back of the head, Dugan said.

Officers found blood on the 22-year-old’s hands when they arrived at the store. The 26-year-old was transported to Evanston Hospital to be examined, Dugan said. The 22-year-old was charged with misdemeanor battery.

Traveler’s checks stolen from home

A 53-year-old man reported $1,000 in traveller’s checks stolen from his home last week.

The man left his home in northwest Evanston on Jan. 10 around noon and returned Jan. 12 at 7:15 p.m., when he found a door on the west side of his house had been forced open, Dugan said.

The door’s frame had been damaged, Dugan said. There are no suspects.
