Evanston Police Department officers on Monday afternoon responded to another report of a theft at the 1616 Sherman Ave. Target in downtown Evanston.

A man entered the store, took two pairs of headphones and a package of Hanes socks and walked past the last point of sale, setting off the alarms, said Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew.

The man made contact with a security officer while trying to leave, Glew said, but managed to push past and flee the scene.

Glew added that this same man, described by Target employees as short with dark hair and a wearing a multicolored backpack, has been involved in past thefts at the same Target.

Items stolen from north Evanston residence

EPD officers responded to a report of theft in the 2500 block of Prairie Avenue in north Evanston on Monday evening.

The 51-year-old resident returned home at around 6 p.m. on Monday to find the front door unlocked. She went inside and found two laptops, one phone, $100 in cash and some documents missing, Glew said.

Glew said the individual seems to have entered through a first floor window by cutting a window screen. The resident said she opened the window, but when she left in the morning, the screen was intact, Glew added.
