RAVENSWOOD — Police said a man attempted to lure a 10-year-old girl in Ravenswood Thursday morning.

The girl was walking around 8 a.m. Thursday in the 2900 block of West Montrose Avenue when a man she didn’t know waved at her and said, “come here,” police said.

She tried to ignore the man and walk past him but he tried to grab her arm, police said. She then ran to her school to tell a teacher what happened, police said.

The man was described as a male white, 30-50 years old, 5′ 07″- 6′ 00″ tall, with brown shaggy hair, blue eyes and wearing a brown or dark colored coat.

Area North detectives are still investigating.
