A 12-year-old girl told police that a man touched her inappropriately at a Lakeview coffee shop on Sunday afternoon, according to a CPD community alert.

Police said the man approached the girl as she sat inside a cafe on the 3000 block of North Clark around 4 p.m. The man reportedly identified himself as “Jackson,” started talking with the girl, and then asked her repeatedly for a hug. He then touched the girl inappropriately, police said.

The girl said the man is black, 20-24 years old, 5’8” to 6-feet tall, and 130-150 pounds. Police said he wore a black Chicago White Sox baseball cap, a black Canada Goose jacket with a fur-lined hood, and blue jeans.

Police advised parents to remind children to seek help from a trusted adult if strangers approach them.
