A 25-year-old Evanston man was charged Monday night with unlawful use of a weapon by a felon.

A woman called the Evanston Police Department to the 1900 block of Grey Avenue at about 7:30 p.m. after an argument with her boyfriend. She told police that her boyfriend struck her but declined to explain further, Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew said.

The woman told police that she wanted her boyfriend, the Evanston man, to leave. When police followed the man inside the residence to get his belongings and escort him out, they saw ammunition, Glew said.

Officers charged the man with unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and possession of ammunition without a firearm owner’s identification card.

The officer ran the man’s name through a database and discovered he did not have a valid license either.
