CHICAGO — A man tried to order a girl into his car Tuesday afternoon in Portage Park.

At 3:15 p.m., the girl was standing at a bus stop in the 5000 block of West Addison Street when a man in a gray car pulled over and motioned for the girl to get into his car, according to a Chicago Police community alert.

The girl ignored the man so he told her, “Get in the car,” police said.

The girl ran off and the man drove away.

The man was white, 40-50 years old and was balding with white hair on the sides of his head, police said. He was in a newer, gray, four-door car.

Anyone with information about the incident was asked to call police at 312-744-8200.
