Man Tries To Lure Girl Into Car In Logan Square

CHICAGO (CBS) — Police are looking for a man who tried to lure a young girl into his car Wednesday in the Logan Square neighborhood.

As WBBM Newsradio’s Steve Grzanich reports, around 8:15 a.m. Wednesday, the 9-year-old girl was walking down the 2000 block of North Point Street – in an isolated section of the neighborhood bounded by California, Armitage and Milwaukee avenues where the streets run askew from the grid.

Police say the man pulled up next to the girl and asked if she wanted a ride. She refused, and the man drove away.

The suspect is described as an African-American male between the ages of 23 and 25 with black hair “up to the middle of his ears,” bluish-green eyes, and a black mole or birthmark on his chin.

He had a gray gauge earring in his left ear and a gold band with a diamond on his left hand, and was wearing a black stocking cap and blue T-shirt with a white skeleton on it.

The man’s car is described as a dirty mid-size silver four-door vehicle, similar to a Toyota, with a shiny hood ornament of a person standing up, according to a police alert.

Anyone with information is asked to call Grand Central Area detectives at (312) 746-8346.

  • tiger paw

    another pervy driving home from the strip joint and needed his chub relieved. sheesh it happens

  • Spookiest spook

    With that description, shouldn’t be too hard CPD to find. Hair “up to the middle of his ears” makes him sound animalish. Shoot to kill.

  • doing my part

    Ever think he was just trying to do a favor? If he was truly a perv or pedophile he probably would have tried to get her in the car a little harder especially if she was walking in an isolated neighborhood. Don’t be so quick to jump to conclusions.

    With that AWESOME / COMPLETE discription , not only would it be eaesier for the police to locate him — but the general public knows exactly who he is. If noone anonymously turns him in SHAME ON THEM!!!

  • non

    I feel as though this may be a hoax. How many 9 year old kids would go into great detail of the perps description?

  • Jerry

    Black man, bluish-green eyes (rare combination)

    a shiny hood ornament of a person standing up

    All the fine detail but no plate number.

    mccormack9 on February 18, 2011 My idcave for a best man speech: (1) Write some bullet point notes. (2) Keep it under a minute unless your a professional speaker. (3) Make a joke yet keep it clean. Grandma does not want to hear about the threesome you and the best man had with Sally on spring break.
