Police are looking for a man who exposed himself and tried to lure a girl into his truck Tuesday afternoon in the West Lawn neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

The girl was with her grandmother about 3:30 p.m. in the 3800 block of West Marquette Road, when the man attempted to lure her into a black four-door pickup truck, according to a community alert from Chicago Police.

The man parked in the rear of the home and walked to the rear gate, where he removed his clothing and exposed himself, police said.
