Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Chicago Police are looking for a man who tried to lure a 13-year-old girl into his van on the West Side last month.

On Aug. 12, the girl was walking out of a store in the 2900 block of West Madison when a man sitting in a white conversion van with a ladder rack on the roof yelled out: "Do you want some money?" according to an alert from police.

The girl ignored the man and continued to walk home, while he followed in the van and asked her again if she wanted money. The girl ran inside her home and told a family member, police said.

A witness later saw the van driving northbound on California near Warren Boulevard.

The suspect was described as white man in his 60s with short, curly salt-and-pepper hair, and a mustache. He was wearing sunglasses, police said.

Anyone with information should call Area Central detectives at (312) 747-8380.
