A 22-year-old man reported Thursday that two armed robbers stole his iPhone near the 100 block of Custer Avenue in south Evanston.

The man said one of the men had a gun and threatened to shoot him if he didn’t hand over his iPhone 6, valued at $200.

The man was then instructed to turn around and start running or he would be shot in the head, Evanston Police Department Cmdr. Ryan Glew said.

There was no serial number on the phone, and there is no one in custody, Glew said.

Man charged with disorderly conduct

A 59-year-old woman reported on Thursday that a man attempted to break into her residence near the 600 block of Ridge Avenue in south Evanston.

The woman said she was scared for her safety and instructed her son to call for help and run to a neighbor’s house. EPD officers arrived at the scene and discovered the man unconscious outside the woman’s home at 636 Ridge Avenue.

He appeared to be intoxicated and was charged with one count of disorderly conduct, Glew said.
