CHICAGO — A man sexually abused a girl Monday in Lakeview, police said.

At 4 p.m., a 12-year-old girl was sitting in a coffee shop in the 3000 block of North Clark Street when a man came up and started talking to the girl. The man asked the girl for a hug several times and then inappropriately touched her, according to a Chicago Police community alert.
