Cops grab man they say grabbed girl

Evanston police have arrested a man who an 11-year-old girl says grabbed her by the arm as she was walking to school Wednesday morning.
Police Commander Tom Guenther says the girl was walking near Simpson Street and Ashland Avenue about 7:30 a.m. when a man she didn't know approached and asked her name, how old she was and where she went to school -- and then grabbed her arm.
