Blotter: Evanston man hit outside apartment building

Cameron Cook, Reporter

Evanston Police Department officers responded to a delayed report of aggravated battery at Presence Saint Francis Hospital Sunday afternoon.

A 49-year-old Evanston resident awoke early Sunday morning to the sounds of someone knocking on the door, said Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew.

A homeless man, whom the resident recognized, requested entry. The resident refused, but then opened the door and attempted to physically remove the homeless man from the property. The homeless man then struck the resident in the chin before leaving the premises, Glew said.

The resident went back inside to discover a large cut on his chin, Glew said. He waited until later that day to get the cut sutured and report the battery.

The resident suggested the cut might have been from a box cutter, but he wasn’t sure, Glew said.

Scooters stolen from Evanston yard

EPD responded to a report of a theft in west Evanston on Sunday at 10:47 p.m.

The 46-year-old female resident said she “heard rummaging” where she kept four electric Razor scooters to charge, Glew said. She banged on the window, and saw a young adult wearing dark colors leave the premises. She discovered two of the four scooters missing, Glew said.

The young adult did not take the charger.
