On Oct. 20, at approximately 7 p.m., members of the Evanston Police Department tactical unit were in the area of Marshfield Avenue and Jonquil Terrace in Chicago looking for a 16-year old male who resides in the area, in reference to an incident that occurred in August 2016, said Joe Dugan of the Evanston Police Department. After locating the juvenile, he fled on foot.
