Blotter: Aggravated robbery

Emma Yarger, Copy Chief

An aggravated robbery occurred on the 1000 block of Davis Street at 1:30 a.m. on Monday.

An Evanston man was walking down Davis when a vehicle passed, did a U-turn and stopped near him. The driver exited the car and approached the man and demanded his valuables, Evanston Police Cmdr. Brian Henry said. The offender made motions that led the victim to believe he had a firearm.

The victim turned over his phone, airpods and wallet, which contained his debit and credit cards, as well as $120 in cash.

The Evanston Police Department is conducting an ongoing investigation.
