Man tried to lure boy to SUV in Jefferson Park

Police are searching for a man who tried to lure a boy to his sport-utility vehicle Sunday in Jefferson Park on the Northwest Side.

About 2:45 p.m., the 11-year-old boy was walking north in the 5100 block of North McVicker when the man pulled up in a tan, four-door SUV and said, “Hey, what’s up?” according to the police.

The man followed as the boy ran and watched him enter his home, police said. The man then drove around the block one time and was last seen driving away north on McVicker.
