A man made lewd comments and tried to solicit a boy at a park on the Northwest Side last week, prompting police to issue a community alert.
A boy was walking home from Eugene Field Park, located at 5100 N. Ridgeway, about 3:10 p.m. on Aug. 10 when a man started talking to him, frightening the boy after making a lewd comment, police said.
The suspect was described as a man with a dark complexion, standing 5-foot-8 and weighing 275 pounds, police said. He is bald and has a tribal tattoo on his upper left arm. He was last seen wearing a white tank top and short, tan pants.
Anyone with information on the man is asked to call Area North detectives at (312) 492-3810.
