Police on Tuesday issued a community alert following an attempted child abduction that reportedly happened in the city's west side Humboldt Park neighborhood last week.
The alert says a man -- possibly white, possibly Hispanic -- pulled up alongside a 13-year-old girl on the 2600 block of West North Avenue on Feb. 1 and asked for her name and age.
The teen said she went into a nearby business and saw the man do a U-turn in his black, four-door Toyota Camry and pull into a parking lot, where he reportedly waited for her to come out. When she did, she told police the man followed her again until she met up with a relative at a bus stop.
The next day, the same child said she was leaving for school when she noticed the same man in the same car in an alley several houses away from hers. The man followed the girl and her sister, police said, as they walked through the alley to school.
The teen described the man as white or Hispanic between the ages of 25 and 30. He was light-skinned and had short brown hair, police said in their alert.
Anyone with information about the incidents should call Area 5 detectives at 312-746-8365.
