Downers Grove police reports, March 8-10


Criminal Damage

A man at 2 p.m. on the 3900 block of Saratoga Avenue said someone damaged the right rear door of his vehicle. The incident occurred sometime between 5 p.m. March 8 and 1:30 p.m. March 10 while it was in his apartment complex parking lot this weekend. He parked his silver 2011 Volkswagen Jetta in different spots this weekend, so he is unsure in which parking spot the damage occurred. "The damage appears to be a tiny scratch caused by another vehicle's door," said the report for this incident. The man does not want an investigation, just the report on file.



David B. Howat, of the 1100 block of South Scoville Avenue, Oak Park, was arrested at 11:15 p.m. at the intersection of Curtiss Street and Mochel Drive.
