A man tried to lure a girl into a car Saturday afternoon near the border of the Lake View and Lincoln Park neighborhoods on the North Side.
A taxi rode up to the girl--whose age was not specified--about 5 p.m. near the intersection of Hermitage and Diversey avenues, according to a community alert from Chicago Police.
The man behind the wheel tried to talk her into getting into the taxi, but she ran away and wasn't harmed, police said.
He was described as a clean-shaven black man with short black hair and a dark complexion, between 25 and 35 years old, the alert said. He was driving a white four-door taxi with black rims.
Anyone with information should call Area North detectives at (312) 744-8261.
