Blotter: Glencoe man arrested in connection with two counts of battery

Sophie Mann, Reporter

A Glencoe resident was arrested Saturday in connection with two counts of battery in east Evanston.

The incident originally occurred on August 5 when an Evanston couple who own a pet service were walking a client’s dog and the dog broke free, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. The 56-year-old man called the number on the dog’s tag, and the couple met with him to get the dog back at which point he became verbally abusive and refused.

When the woman attempted to take the dog, the man pushed her, Dugan said. When her husband told the man not to touch her, the man punched him in the left side of his body before leaving the dog and fleeing.

The case was assigned to detectives who located the man and charged him with two counts of battery, a misdemeanor.

Passport stolen from vehicle in south Evanston

An Evanston woman’s garage was broken into between 7 and 8 a.m. Tuesday morning in south Evanston.

The only item stolen was the woman’s passport from her vehicle, Dugan said. The doors to the vehicle — located in the 2000 block of Seward Street — were locked, but a window was down.

The woman believes it was a neighbor that she has recently been having trouble with, Dugan said. There are no known suspects.
