Julia Esparza, Copy Chief

Officers arrested a 36-year-old Evanston man early Wednesday morning in connection with breach of peace.

An officer on patrol in the 1500 block of Sherman Avenue saw a man yelling profanities in the middle of the street at about 4:30 a.m. When police told him to quiet down, he began to insult a homeless man sleeping nearby, Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew said.

When the man continued to yell, police told him to leave the area, but the man then attempted to flee from the officer, Glew said. The officer also reported the smell of alcohol on the man, Glew added.

Police charged the man with disorderly conduct.

Police arrested a 26-year-old woman Wednesday morning in connection with domestic battery.

Officers responded to a noise complaint in the 1100 of Maple Avenue at about 1 a.m. When police arrived, the woman was yelling to look for her dog, so officers left. Evanston Police Department received another call from a person who saw the woman strike a 19-year-old Winnetka man in the head, causing him to bleed, Glew said.

Police determined the two people were dating, and the man refused medical attention, Glew said.

The woman was charged with domestic battery.
