Attempted Child Luring Near Uptown/Andersonville Border

Chicago police have issued a community alert after a man tried to lure a 13-year-old boy into his car near the border of Uptown and Andersonville Tuesday morning.

The boy was walking in the 5100 block of North Clark around 8 a.m. when a  man in a dark blue four-door vehicle pulled up and told him to get into the car. Instead, the victim ran to his home and called his parents, police said.

The suspect is described as a small, thinly-built white man who has short, straight gray hair and a clean-shaven face. He may be driving a Toyota Corolla, according to the police alert.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Area North Detectives at 312-747-8380 about case JB-126425.
