Man Tries To Lure 11-Year-Old Boy On Far Northwest Side

CHICAGO (CBS) — Police are looking for an apparent child molester who was unsuccessful in luring a boy into his vehicle Tuesday on the city’s Far Northwest Side.

As WBBM Newsradio’s Bernie Tafoya reports, a Chicago Police community alert says the man tried to entice an 11-year-old boy to get in his car Tuesday morning.

At the time, the boy was walking along the 7400 block of West School Street, not far from Belmont and Harlem avenues.

The stranger offered to play video games with the boy, saying, “Let’s go play Xbox.”

But when the boy refused, police say when the boy refused, the man got out of his car and began to chase the boy, who ran home.

The man got into his small to mid-size purple two-door car with tinted windows and drove away.

The suspect is described as a white or Hispanic man 30 to 40 with a medium complexion, 5-foot-9 to 5-foot-10 and 150-170 pounds.

He had black and gray hair, a full, closely-trimmed black beard, think eyebrows the child described as a unibrow, and large lips, according to the alert.

Police said he was wearing a black T-shirt with red lettering over a white, long-sleeved shirt and baggy black pants.

    Parents must make sure their children walk in groups also if it had been a blak man there would have been hundred of comments instead of a few

    • Jack

      Rightfully so, kennith, rightfully so!

        I see Lyndia been smokin crack I can’t wait til her turn comes when the little ni gg er boy shoots her in the head

      • Lyndia

        But they will post. Look at the idiot that goes by the name afro. He always have something to say. He is to stupid to realize that his comments are misplaced. He is deeply envious of the Black man for more reasons than one. He is resentful because his mother ran off with the Black man that use to pick up her garbage. As she once told me, “He looks nice, treats me well and he has a good city job plus I love the way he loves me.” nough said.

    Disgusting! These gay pedophiles are by far the worst of their breed!

    • Lyndia

      The way I have been taught was, pedophiles like children and gays like the same sex. Therefore, this man appears to be a pedophile.

      • Peter Piper

        Yes, a pedophile. A gay pedophile!

  • Afro

    I hope they catch this sick POS for acting like those south siders

  • malcom

    not all liberals and democrats are pedophiles but most pedophiles are liberals and democrats.

  • NWA

    What is a gay Pedophile?

    Never heard of one of those. I thought a pedophile was pedophile.


    • Jake

      Very funny, NWA. Gay= males that prefer males. Pedophile= people that prefer adolecents. A gay pedophile is a male that prefers young boy’s little willies. Now you see how stupid your question is.

      • Jake


    • Afro

      Look in the mirror NWA just look in the mirror, then you will see one

  • juju

    Gay pedophile = Anglo Saxon. The whole race wants to sleep with children and their sisters/mothers/aunts/brothers. Romans should have just exterminated them.

  • brotten

    How about , lure the pedophiles, snag them as discretely as possible and make them disappear as the children often do? Whatever torture and abuse they suffer through in captivity will have to match or surpass what the children go through as well. Now, who thinks this is a good answer to eliminate this virus?
