Police: Man tried to lure, kidnap 10-year-old in Albany Park

Chicago police are warning parents in the Albany Park neighborhood about a reported child luring and attempted kidnapping of a 10-year-old girl.

In a community alert issued early Monday, police said the girl was walking on the 2900 block of West Montrose around 8 a.m. on Jan. 30 when a man waved at her and said, “come here.” The man then tried to grab the girl’s arm when she attempted to walk past him, police said. 

The girl slipped away and ran to school where she notified a teacher who then called police. 

Police said the man is white, 30- to 50-years-old, 5’7” to 6-feet tall, with blue eyes and shaggy brown hair. He wore a brown or dark-colored coat. 

Anyone with information about the incident can contact Area North detectives at 312-744-8266 regarding case JD-133636.
