Chicago Police are searching for a man who lured a woman into an SUV while pretending to be a police officer on the city's North Side. 

Police said the woman was approached by a man driving an SUV around 1 a.m. Oct. 4 while she walked in the area of 4700 N. Clark St. in the Ravenswood neighborhood. The man, who identified himself as the police, told her he noticed someone following her and said she should enter his car for safety.

The man later forced the woman to exit the vehicle so he could "search" her, police said. He sexually abused her and fled.

Police said the man is described as between 30 and 40 years old, standing 6-feet tall and weighing about 200 pounds with a very short, afro-style haircut. He is also described as good-looking, clean-cut and well-spoken, police said.

He was driving a large, dark-colored SUV of unknown color or model with fabric interior.

Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy says a real officer will have a bulletproof vest on, as well as a radio in their car, and a police light on the inside or outside of the vehicle.

"If you're not sure that it's a police officer, you should call 911," McCarthy said.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Area North Detectives at 312-744-8261. Anonymous tips can be submitted to tipsoft.com.
