A man was arrested in connection with a hit and run accident early Wednesday morning in south Evanston, police said.

No one was injured in the hit and run involving two vehicles, which occurred on Feb. 18 at 1:30 p.m. in the 300 block of Callan, but one male driver fled the scene, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said.

Just before 5:30 a.m. Wednesday, a patrol officer identified and arrested the man in the 1300 block of South Boulevard, Dugan said. He was charged with failure to remain at the scene and failure to give information, and his driver’s license was suspended.

Graffiti discovered in west Evanston

A fence in west Evanston was reported vandalized on Wednesday morning.

The vandalism complaint came from a neighbor on the 2000 block of Foster, who reported that the graffiti had been on the fence since November 2016, Dugan said. The fence has gang-related graffiti of upside-down pitchforks on it.

Officers were unable to get in touch with the property owner but left a card with the case number, Dugan said.
