Officers arrested a man in connection with a verbal dispute on Thursday in west Evanston.

Officers were called to the 1700 block of Dodge Avenue around 10:45 a.m. to respond to a reported verbal dispute between a 30-year-old Evanston resident and her child’s father over the use of a vehicle.

The woman put the 2-month-old child in the car and was attempting to back out of the driveway when the man threw a brick at the front passenger side window, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. The window broke as a result.

Officers arrested the man at the scene, and he was charged with criminal damage to property, aggravated assault and child endangerment — all misdemeanors.

“Free Palestine” spray painted on car dealership

Officers responded to a report Thursday of someone spray painting on a wall in south Evanston.

At roughly 4:00 p.m., police received a report about vandalism on a wall owned by the Autobarn Volkswagen of Evanston in the 1000 block of Chicago Avenue.

“Free Palestine” was found written on the wall in black spray paint. The man was reported to be wearing a trench coat and have red hair, Dugan said.
