Chicago Police are looking for a man who tried to lure two children into a car Saturday morning in West Rogers Park on the North Side.

The light-blue four-door car pulled up to the kids, ages 7 and 10, about 9:15 a.m. in the 2900 block of West Lunt, according to a community alert.

The bald man at the wheel motioned for them to come closer and then started to get out of the car. When the kids kept walking, he got back into the car and began to drive alongside them, police said. They ran home and the car took off west on Lunt.

Police said the man was about 40 with a brown beard. Anyone with information should call Area North detectives at (312) 744-8200.
