Evanston Police Department officers on Thursday evening responded to a report of battery in the parking lot on 2400 Main St. in southwest Evanston.

A 61-year-old man from Chicago backed his car out of a parking spot out in front of a 63-year-old man from Skokie who was pushing a shopping cart, said Evanston police communications coordinator Perry Polinski.

The Chicago man got out of his car, and the two men began to argue, Polinski said.

The Chicago man then hit the Skokie man in the face, causing a minor injury, he said.
