NORTH LAWNDALE — Police are warning residents after a man tried to kidnap a 10-year-old girl in North Lawndale Wednesday.

At about 4:15 p.m., the girl got off a CTA bus and was crossing the street in the 1600 block of South Homan Avenue when a man in a blue four-door car told her to “get in the car, so I can take you somewhere,” police said in a community alert.

The 10-year-old ran away, and the man drove east on 16th Street, police said.

The man was described as black, 30-39 years old and had black hair, police said. He wore a dark jacket.
