A 23-year-old Lincolnwood man was arrested Tuesday in connection with domestic battery outside Harold’s Chicken.

The man and his ex-girlfriend drove to the restaurant at 337 Howard St. from her house at about 4:30 p.m., Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew said. While they were outside the restaurant, the man got upset because another man was brought up in their conversation.

The woman, a 24-year-old Evanston resident, told police the man then struck her in the face three times. He fled on foot and left her with a bloody nose, Glew said.

A witness on the scene described the man to police, who found him outside the Chase Bank at 1791 Howard St. He was charged with domestic battery.

Residential burglary in west Evanston

Police are investigating a residential burglary that occurred Tuesday in south Evanston.

A resident who lives in the 400 block of Sheridan Road notified police that her neighbor’s back door had been left open at 5:54 p.m., Glew said. The resident said the door was closed when the renter of the unit left at 2:30 p.m.

Police searched the apartment but found no suspects, Glew said. Neighbors tried to reach the 62-year-old woman who is renting the space but initially received no response.

The woman then called police at 8:30 p.m. when she returned home, Glew said. She reported a television valued at $150, two pairs of pearl earrings valued at $120 and other jewelry as missing.

Police have not identified any suspects.
