An Evanston man reported Friday that he had been punched in the Davis Street Metra Station on Friday.

The 65-year-old man said he was walking in the tunnel by the Metra station on Friday at 2:30 p.m. when a man that he did not know punched him in the face, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said.

Officers on the scene observed cuts on the man’s face, and he was treated by Evanston Fire Department paramedics. The Evanston resident was able to identify his alleged attacker to detectives, Dugan said.

The man was charged on Monday with misdemeanor battery.

Golf clubs stolen from vehicle

An Evanston resident man reported his car had been robbed while it was parked in west Evanston Sunday.

The 55-year-old man parked his 1998 Honda in the 2600 block of Payne Street at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dugan said. The man noticed that the interior contents of his car were in disarray when he returned at 2 p.m. the next day.

The man then realized that someone had taken his Callaway golf bag filled with golf clubs, valued at $1,600. Dugan said the car had been left unlocked.
