Sophie Mann, Reporter

An Evanston woman and a teenager were arrested Tuesday afternoon in connection with battery in west Evanston.

A 13-year-old boy hit a 12-year-old girl and fled, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. The girl had some facial redness, but did not require treatment.

The 13-year-old fled into a home on the 1700 block of Lyons Street prior to police arrival and a group of adults went to the residence to confront him, Dugan said. Members of the victim’s family attempted to enter the scene and confront the boy’s family.

An officer attempted to stop an adult female relative of the victim, but the woman pushed the officer and grabbed her wrist, Dugan said.

The woman and the boy were taken into custody and charged with battery.

They were missing two TVs, an Amazon Fire TV Stick, an iron and several jewelry items.

There are no suspects, Dugan said.
