Cameron Cook, Assistant Campus Editor

Evanston Police Department officers Thursday afternoon responded to a report of a theft at Sashimi Sashimi in downtown Evanston.

A 53-year-old Evanton resident told officers that, upon receiving a fraud alert from her credit card company, she found her wallet missing, said Evanston police communications coordinator Perry Polinski.

The woman said her wallet was taken from her purse, which was hanging on the back of a chair, by an unknown person earlier that Thursday while she dined at 640 Church St., Polinski said.

The wallet contained credit cards, a debit card and various identifying information, Polinksi added.

Glass broken, radar detector stolen from car

EPD officers responded to a report of a defacement and theft Thursday in the 1000 block of Colfax Street in northwest Evanston.

A 42-year-old male Evanston resident told officers that someone broke out the passenger window of his 2008 Infiniti sometime between Wednesday night and Thursday morning while it was parked outside on Colfax Street, Polinksi said.

The person also took a radar detector, which was valued at around $350, from the car, Polinksi added.
