An Evanston resident was arrested in connection with domestic battery Monday.

The 51-year-old man’s daughter reported that her father had struck her while sitting in his parked car at the Shell gas station, 500 Dodge Ave.

The woman reported that she and her father got into a dispute at about 2 p.m., Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. After being struck, the woman told police she exited the car and called the police. She had bruises and cuts under her right eye, Dugan said. There was one witness who observed the incident.

Police located the Evanston man and arrested him. He is due to appear in court on March 15.

Tire scratched on parked car

A Skokie resident reported that someone had tried to slash the tire of her car in west Evanston.

The 47-year-old woman parked her car Tuesday in the 1000 block of Darrow Avenue while visiting an Evanston man, Dugan said. When the woman returned to her car at about 2 p.m, she saw a scratch on the front driver’s side tire and suspected that someone had tried to slash it, Dugan said.

While visiting the man, the woman said his ex-girlfriend stopped by, Dugan said. The woman told police that she suspected the ex-girlfriend had scratched her tire.

The tire was not compromised, Dugan said, but the Skokie woman wanted to have the incident documented.
