Police are looking for two people suspected of trying to lure a 9-year-old boy into their vehicle Friday in Marquette Park on the South Side.

The boy was walking about 8:10 a.m. in the 2700 block of West 68th Street when someone in a gray four-door sedan pulled up beside him, Chicago police said. The people inside asked if the boy wanted a ride to school, but he refused.

The vehicle then drove away, made a U-turn and someone inside asked the boy again, police said. The child refused, and the suspects drove away.

The driver was male and his passenger was female, police said.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Area Central detectives at 312-747-8380.
