Amelia Langas, Development & Recruitment Editor

Around 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, the Evanston Police Department responded to a call regarding a stolen bicycle in the 2500 block of McDaniel Avenue in northwest Evanston.

Responding officers talked to the 67-year-old man who is the resident of the location. The man said that his Trek bicycle — valued at around $1,200 — was stolen from his garage between 11 p.m. Saturday and noon Sunday, Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew said.

The residence was a condominium, so the garage is shared by all residents of the location. The man said his bike was not secured, and that he noticed the door to the garage was open.

Police are investigating and the man said he was willing to sign complaints, Glew said.

Evanston residents report criminal damage to property

A 32-year-old woman and her husband reported criminal damage to their property to EPD on Monday.

The woman, who is a resident in the 1600 block of Foster Street, told police that juvenile boys kicked the door of her house, causing the paint to chip. The woman’s husband said he recognized the juveniles as having knocked on the door on Thanksgiving saying they were hungry, Glew said.

The man said he had let the boys in and lent them a skateboard, which they had yet to return.

The juveniles fled on foot.
