Chicago police issued a community alert after two parents reported stumbling upon a bizarre scene in Lincoln Square on Friday evening.

The grown-ups were walking their children home from school around 4 p.m. when they saw a shirtless man sitting alone in a car outside of the old “Sure Thing” auto dealership at 4430 North Western, according to the alert and a separate report.

When the parents looked closer, they found the man to be completely nude and possibly in the process of ingesting narcotics. Cocaine specifically, according to their initial call to 911.

The man eventually drove away southbound on Western. He is described as white, heavyset, 40- to 55-years-old, with gray hair. He was driving a maroon older model Pontiac Grand Am.

Police don’t know what to make of the situation, but they are asking people to not pursue suspects and to call 911 with any details of any suspicious activity.

If you have any information, contact Area North detectives at (312) 744-8261.
