Evanston Police Department officers arrived at the scene and found a couple fighting in the apartment. The man had broken two windows, and he was arrested and brought into custody, Polinski said.

The Evanston man was charged with criminal damage to property.

A Walgreens employee called the police after a man who had stolen over-the-counter medication earlier in the day had returned to the store, Polinski said. EDP officers arrived at the scene and examined security footage that confirmed the original theft.

Officers arrested the man and took him into custody, Polinski said. He was charged with retail theft.
