Evanston Police Department officers arrested a 19-year-old Chicago man Monday in connection with assault.

On April 9 around 1:45 p.m., EPD responded to a disturbance in a parking lot near the intersection of Darrow Avenue and Emerson Street. After interviewing the two combatants, the Chicago man and a 17-year-old Evanston boy, police determined that the fight stemmed from an argument over a girlfriend, Evanston communications coordinator Perry Polinski said.

Upon further investigation, police determined that the Chicago man attempted to hit the Evanston boy with a car, Polinski said.

The Chicago man surrendered himself to a detective Monday morning and was charged with assault.
