Blotter: Woman arrested for assault, phone taken from Whole Foods

Molly Burke, Reporter

A 36-year-old Evanston woman was arrested Thursday at around 1 p.m. for assault, Evanston police said.

The woman turned herself in at 1454 Elmwood Ave. following the incident on Jan. 10, during which she confronted another woman and made threats toward her, Evanston police Cmdr. Brian Henry said.

The Evanston Police Department followed up the confrontation with an investigation, because the woman was not on the scene when police responded to the incident, which was prompted by a conflict over a man.

The woman has a court date on Feb. 20.

Phone stolen from Whole Foods

A cell phone was taken from an Evanston man Thursday at the Whole Foods on Green Bay Road. The phone’s owner went to use the restroom and left the phone, valued at $600, unattended, but when he returned a couple minutes later the item was gone.

There is currently no information about the suspect, but the man who owns the phone called it following the theft and someone answered. Whole Foods also may have surveillance video that will be investigated.
