CHICAGO (STMW) — A man followed two teenage girls and grabbed one of them early Saturday on the West Side.

The girls, ages 15 and 18, were walking near Kedzie Avenue and Cermak Road at 6 a.m. when a man followed them to the 2300 block of West Cullerton Avenue, according to a community alert from Area Central detectives.
