Police are looking for someone who tried to lure two children into a car Monday afternoon in northwest suburban unincorporated Bensenville.

The children were walking home from school about 3:30 p.m. near Red Oak Street and Briar Lane in unincorporated Bensenville when a female drove up and asked if they wanted a ride home, according to a statement from the DuPage County sheriff’s office.

She approached them a second time and they ran away and called for help, the sheriff’s office said.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian female between 5 feet and 5-foot-6 with a medium build and black hair, the sheriff’s office said. Her age was not known, but she might have been wearing glasses.
