CHICAGO — A group of men tried to lure a teenage girl to their car Friday in Gladstone Park.

At 9:20 p.m., a 14-year-old girl was walking in the 5900 block of West Bryn Mawr Avenue when a car with four men stopped by her, police said. The driver whistled at the girl and the front seat passenger called over to her and motioned for her to get into the car.

The girl ignored the men and told her parents what happened.

The four men were white or Hispanic, police said. The front seat passenger had a full beard, wore a red shirt and had a tattoo on his right arm. Another passenger wore a chain around his neck and the other passenger wore a navy blue sweatshirt.

The four were inside a maroon minivan that was rusty and had a broken passenger-side mirror.

Anyone with information about the incident was asked to call police at 312-744-8266.
