Kristina Karisch, Assistant City Editor

A 23-year-old woman from Western Springs, Illinois, had her wallet stolen at Cheesie’s Pub & Grub at 622 Davis St. on Saturday.

At around 3 a.m. on Saturday, the woman was approached by an unidentified male in the restaurant, Evanston Police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said.

The woman said the man started a conversation with her, Dugan said, which she believed was aimed to distract her. When the man left, she noticed her wallet was missing.

The stolen wallet is a green and blue cloth wallet from Vera Bradley, valued at about $20. Inside were the woman’s driver’s license, three credit cards, a debit card and other forms of identification, Dugan said.

Car stolen from street

A 30-year-old man reported his car as stolen Monday in south Evanston.

The man told police that he parked his car, a blue 1998 Honda Civic, at 7 p.m. on Feb. 5, but it was no longer there when he returned the next morning at 8 a.m.

The man’s keys are accounted for, Dugan said.
