Two men who were looking for a fight threatened an ETHS student with a handgun as he left the high school Friday afternoon, according to police.
The student knew both men, who approached him around 4:10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18, as he was leaving the high school in the 1600 block of Dodge Avenue, according to Evanston Police Cmdr. Diane Davis. The two men called him a name and asked him to go to the 1600 block of Main Street for a fight. One of the men also displayed the butt of a handgun, according to Davis.
The student, whose age police are not releasing, ignored them and went on his way, at which point the two men took off, Davis said. Police found out about the incident when a caller reported it about 30 minutes later, and looked for the suspects, but could not find them.
Davis said nothing was taken from the student, and emphasized that it was not a robbery.
