Evanston police say a 22-year-old Evanston man was arrested on gun charges early Friday morning.
Kevon L. Jones, of 1912 Ashland Ave., was taken into custody at 12:47 a.m., just over the Chicago line, at 7560 N. Clark St., and charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.
In separate incidents on Thursday two victims reported they’d been approached by an assailant brandishing a handgun and demanding money.
One incident happened at 2:47 a.m. at a gas station in the 1900 block of Green Bay Road. The other at 9:01 p.m. on the sidewalk in the 1700 block of Oak Avenue.
In both cases the victims managed to escape without giving the gunman anything.
Here’s Friday’s EPD crime bulletin.
