Two women filed reports to police of damage to their cars following a brief argument in the parking lot of the Jewel-Osco grocery store on Chicago Avenue. This among the stories in today’s daily crime report from Evanston police.

According to Cmdr. Ryan Glew, one of the women was driving a 2018 Porche and the other a 2015 Dodge Caravan. The driver of the Dodge complained that the Porche came into the parking lot at about 9:52 a.m. yesterday and came extremely close to the grocery cart she was pushing.

Words were exchanged, he said, and the driver of the Porche told police her car was damaged intentionally as a result. Later, the driver of the Dodge filed a similar report, Glew said.
