Evanston police say a 13-year-old boy was beaten by three other teens near the intersection of Dodge Avenue and Greenwood Street about 4:45 p.m. Thursday. The assailants escaped southbound on Dodge and police units in the area were unable to locate them.

In a separate incident at 517 Elmwood St., a 12-year-old reported that a boy about 15 years old grabbed a cellphone from his hand and then ran off.

Elsewhere on the crime front, burglars broke into homes Thursday afternoon in the 1700 block of Monroe Street and the 1300 block of Brummel Street and made off with electronics gear, and somebody reported a city garbage can missing from a home at 2145 Maple Ave.
