A 26-year-old Evanston man was arrested Friday morning in connection with domestic battery.

At 12:30 a.m., officers responded to the 1800 block of Hartrey Avenue. The man allegedly said he was going to kill himself when his sister verbally encouraged him to do so, Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew said.

Glew said the man then became upset and chased the woman. He got a hold of her and struck her in the mouth twice with a closed fist.

Officers observed bruising and swelling on the woman’s lip, and her shirt collar was stretched from the man grabbing her, Glew said.

A witness corroborated the woman’s account, and the man was arrested at 1:59 a.m.

Homeless man arrested in connection with possession of controlled substance

A homeless man was arrested Thursday night in the 1200 block of Chicago Avenue in connection with possession of heroin, drug possession and drug paraphernalia possession related to a February incident.

The original incident occurred Feb. 15 when the man was placed in custody for criminal trespassing at the CVS on Asbury Street, Glew said.

During the incident, officers located a small plastic bag with a white substance in his pocket. The substance was confirmed to be heroin.

Officers saw the man Thursday and arrested him in connection with the February incident.
