Blotter: Man arrested for disobeying police order

Julia Esparza, Copy Chief

A 40-year-old Chicago man was arrested early Monday morning in connection with disobeying police orders.

Police were patrolling near the 700 block of Forest Avenue when they saw a person walking north of a vehicle with its interior lights on, Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew said. The officers tried to make contact with the man but he ran away and jumped a fence, allegedly trespassing on the property, Glew said.

After searching the area, officers found the man in an alley near the intersection of Kedzie Street and Forest Avenue, where the man “continued to ignore verbal commands,” Glew said.

The man was charged with disobeying police in a public place upon a given lawful order.

Woman charged with assault after argument at gas station

Police arrested a 27-year-old Chicago woman in connection with battery after an argument with another woman at a Marathon gas station, 555 Howard St.

On April 17 at about 5 p.m., the 27-year-old woman allegedly pushed a 33-year-old woman after claiming she tried to hit the 27-year-old’s car, Glew said. The younger woman said she did not push the other. Police did not arrest her at the time because the 33-year-old was deaf and could not explain her side of the story.

Following further investigation, police arrested the 27-year-old woman Saturday at about 9:15 a.m. and charged her with battery.
