A man tried to lure a 13-year-old boy into a vehicle Tuesday afternoon in the Logan Square neighborhood on the Northwest Side.
The boy was walking south in the 2100 block of North Lawndale about 3:45 p.m. when the man drove up in a white four-door vehicle and asked for directions, according to a community alert from Chicago Police.
The boy was unable to help the man with directions, at which point the man offered him money, according to police. The man then opened the door and exited the vehicle, and the boy ran away.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic man between 30 and 40 years old with a Mohawk hairstyle and a mustache, police said. He was driving a white, four-door vehicle, although the make and model were not known early Wednesday.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Area North detectives at (312) 744-8200.
