EVANSTON Crime Blotter

Good evening, everyone, it's 8:52pm. I know I made a post a little while ago, but I've decided to do something a bit special. I know Evanston is a northern suburb, but as of tonight, I've decided to start a project where I will periodically monitor some of the immediate suburbs surrounding Chicago (Evanston, Skokie, Lincolnwood, Norridge, Harwood Heights, Elmwood Park, Oak Park and Cicero). This project will not occur often, but it will be at least every month or twice a month, depending on how busy I get this summer. I'm doing this so we can get a feel of what's going on just outside of Chicago. Tonight, I'm beginning with Evanston, which is just north of Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood on the Far North Side. Evanston is an interesting area, to say the least, because it's considered a city and it has some very interesting areas. The downtown area and the east side of Evanston can be considered to be safe, while there are rough areas in southwestern and western Evanston. Honestly, I'm not really sure how the southeast and the north side of town are. If anyone would like more information as into why I'm doing this, please do not hesitate to send me an email. Now that I'm out of school for a few weeks, I'll be able to update a lot more, and I will be less busier this summer. With that, here's crime in Evanston for this evening into the overnight hours.
