On Tuesday afternoon, a 14-year-old girl was the subject of an alleged child abduction attempt in Oak Lawn.
The girl called 911, claiming that she was being followed by a male for a number of blocks and being repeatedly asked to get into his van.
The incident occurred as the girl was walking southbound on Pulaski, near 95th Street.
Although Oak Lawn and Evergreen Park Police were able to get to the girl within a minute of the 911 call, the suspect had left the area.
The man was described as a black male in his 40s, having short hair, a mustache, and was wearing a yellow t-shirt. The man’s van was described as red or maroon in color, and possibly a Ford Windstar.
