LITTLE VILLAGE — A woman attempted to kidnap a child walking home from school Monday afternoon in Little Village, police said. 

At 2:50 p.m. Monday, an 11-year-old was walking home in the 3700 block of West 31st Street when a woman driving a white van approached the girl and asked her to put items inside the van, said Kellie Bartoli, a Chicago Police Department spokeswoman.

After the girl ignored the request, the woman briefly followed her before fleeing southbound on Lawndale, Bartoli said.

The woman is described between 40 and 50 years-old, 5-foot to 5-foot-three and 180 to 120 pounds with long brown hair.

No arrest has been made, and police are investigating.
