Julia Esparza, Assistant City Editor

A 53-year-old Skokie woman was dining at Unicorn Cafe on Tuesday when her wallet was taken from her purse.

The woman reported the theft to Evanston Police Department at about 8 p.m. after her credit card company alerted her to suspicious activity on her account, Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew said. The woman said she was eating at the cafe, 1723 Sherman Ave., from 3:30 to 5:10 p.m when the wallet — along with several credit, identification and insurance cards — were taken from her bag.

The woman said the wallet contained about $85. Police do not have any suspects.

Walgreens employee reports liquor theft

An assistant manager at the south Evanston Walgreens, 635 Chicago Ave., reported a man fleeing the store without paying for two bottles of vodka on Tuesday.

The 35-year-old Chicago resident said a man entered the store about 3 p.m. and took two bottles of vodka worth $10 and $20, Glew said. The employee alerted the police, but could not offer a detailed description of the man.

Surveillance cameras on the scene were not able to capture a clear image of the man, and police do not have any suspects.
