Police are looking for a man who tried to lure a 14-year-old girl into a vehicle Wednesday evening in the Belmont Central neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

The girl was walking north in the 2300 block of North Moody about 5 p.m. when a man motioned for her to come to his vehicle, according to a community alert from Chicago Police.

When she ignored his gesture, the man opened the door to get out of the vehicle and the girl ran away, police said. He tried to block her path, but the girl continued to run.

The suspect was last seen driving eastbound in the south alley of Fullerton, according to police. He is described as an 18-to-35-year-old man with a shaved head and tan skin. He was wearing a white dress shirt with a red tie.

He was driving a black four-door vehicle with silver trim around the windows, police said. The make and model were unknown.

Anyone with information about the man or incident should call Area North detectives at (312) 744-8200. Anonymous tips can be submitted to
