A man waiting for his shopping wife in the parking lot of Freshline Foods noticed a man in a “beater pickup truck” driving slowly around the lot and confronting customers at their vehicles.
When the police responded to his call of the suspicious activity, they noticed a man brushing off the rear bumper of a black Nissan SUV. The man saw the police approaching in the squad and allegedly entered his beater truck and placed the car in gear. At that point, the officer stopped the vehicle, which had the male driver and a female passenger.
The driver of the vehicle, Sauvelly J. Evans reportedly told the officer that he was showing the driver of the Nissan that he could help her remove key scratches from the car. The driver of the Nissan, a 27 year old Oak Lawn woman, confirmed that she was confronted by Evans after she finished shopping.
Evans told the woman that he could fix the scratches for the sum of $40 according to the woman. He was wiping the car and she claims she told him to stop. He did stop but only after the officer entered the lot.
Evans did not have a license to solicit in Oak Lawn and was issued a village ordinance citation for soliciting without a license. Evans is a 38 year old white male with a Hammond, Indiana address.
