CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Police are looking for a man who allegedly tried to kidnap a teenage girl while she was jogging Tuesday night in the Gage Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

The 15-year-old girl was jogging on California Avenue and was approaching 50th Street between 8:30 and 8:45 p.m. when a dark blue, four-door vehicle with tinted back windows and five males inside pulled up next to her, police said.

A man between 20 and 30 years old jumped out and grabbed the girl’s arm to pull her into the vehicle while saying, “Get in the car,” police said.

The girl broke free and ran off, police said. The vehicle was driven off southbound on California.

The man who grabbed the girl is described as Hispanic, and was last wearing dark brown shorts and a black hooded sweatshirt, police said.

Anyone with information should call Area Central detectives at (312) 747-8380.
