Man Charged with Unlawful Use of Weapon

On June 28,  at 1:33 a.m. Evanston police officers responded to a call about an incident at the Burger King located at 1740 Orrington Avenue, said Commander Ryan Glew of the Evanston Police Department.  When officers arrived, a 33-year old male employee of Burger King told them that a man had displayed a handgun and threatened him after the employee told the suspect not to enter the restaurant's women's bathroom, said the Commander. The suspect fled the restaurant when the employee was calling 911.

The employee give officers a description of the suspect and the suspect’s vehicle, and the direction the suspect fled. Other officers located the suspect at Chicago Avenue and Davis Street, and stopped the vehicle to investigate. During the investigation officers located a 9 MM Ruger Security 9 in the vehicle, said the Commander. Officers learned that the suspect had a suspended driver's license and an FOID Card, but did not have a Concealed Carry License, said the Commander. 

The suspect, a 38-year old Chicago man, was charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and other offenses, said the Commander.
