Man Charged in June 11 Incident Near ETHS

A 44-year old Evanston man was charged with attempted armed robbery and aggravated battery of an Evanston man who was driving home after he had just dropped off his son at Evanston Township High School on June 11. 

The driver was confronted by the offender who blocked the intersection atDavis Street and Darrow Avenue, said Commander Parrott of the Evanston Police Department. When the driver stopped his vehicle, the offender reached in on the driver side window and grabbed the steering wheel and gear shift. The offender displayed what appeared to be a box cutter type knife and demanded the driver’s money, said the Commander. 

The driver was cut by the offender in the left arm, right hand and head, after which the offender fled on foot, said the Commander. The driver was taken by Evanston fire paramedics to Evanston North Shore University Hospital for treatment, and was reportedly in good condition.  

While investigating the crime on June 11, police located a jacket believed to be worn by the offender. Witnesses in the investigation were also located and interviewed by police. Detectives then received an anonymous tip through Chicago police from a source identifying the offender, said the Commander. 

Multiple witnesses identified the offender in a photo array and a physical line-up, said the Commander. While being interviewed by detectives, the offender made admissions which corroborated the witness identifications, said the Commander. 

Evanston Police thank the witnesses who cooperated in the investigation and also the Chicago Police Department for their cooperation.
