A 63-year-old Evanston man was charged early Saturday morning with domestic battery.

A 48-year-old woman called police saying her ex-boyfriend — the Evanston man — hit her in both the chest and neck and pushed her to the ground, Dugan said. Police officers who arrived at the scene noticed that the woman’s collar had been stretched “significantly” and that her chest was red.

Police located the man near the intersection of Ashland Avenue and Lake Street, Dugan said. He was charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic battery.
