CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Police are searching for a man who tried to lure a teen girl into his van last week on the West Side.

The man was driving in the 700 block of South Karlov Avenue about 1:20 p.m. on July 9 when he asked the 14-year-old girl, "Do you want a ride, sweetheart?" according to a community alert issued Thursday. He then got out of the vehicle and grabbed the girl's shoulder to try to get her into the van.

Police described the vehicle as a white cargo van, possibly a Chevrolet, with no side windows and tinted driver's and passenger side windows.

The man is described a bald black man, between 40-50 years old, about 200 pounds with a dark complexion, yellowish teeth, big pointed ears, a lazy right eye and acne, the alert said.

He was wearing a black and white shirt with horizontal stripes, khaki shorts and black and brown sandals.

Anyone with information should call Area North detectives at (312) 744-8200.
