Sophie Mann, Copy Chief

A 19-year-old Evanston resident was arrested in connection with domestic battery at her family home in south Evanston Tuesday, police said.

The woman called the police at about 11:40 a.m. after a verbal argument between her parents supposedly became physical, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said.

Dugan said the woman told police she exited her bedroom after she heard her father slap her mother, at which point she said her father punched her in the side of the head.

However, her mother, 46, and father, 59, reported that there was no violence between them, but that the daughter had slapped and kicked her father, Dugan said. The police found no bruises or marks on the daughter’s head when they arrived. She was arrested and charged with domestic battery, he said.

Local man’s TV stolen in south Evanston

An Evanston man reported Wednesday that his television had gone missing from his home, Dugan said.

The 44-year-old man said he had locked the door when he left his home at 12:30 p.m., but when he returned at 6:30 p.m., he found the television — a 50-inch Samsung — was missing, Dugan said.

Nothing else was missing or tampered with, Dugan said.
