Someone tried to kidnap a 14-year-old girl in the Little Village neighborhood Tuesday night.
The girl was walking toward a store in the 3500 block of West Cermak Road about 5:30 p.m. when someone tried to talk to her.
When she tried to walk away the man grabbed her from behind and tried to take her away while telling the girl to come with him.
She ran inside the store and her assailant fled down Drake Avenue.
The alert described the attacker as a Hispanic man between the ages of 17 and 21, about 130 pounds and between 5-feet-3-inches and 5-feet-5-inches tall.
He had a narrow face with pointed chin and nose and medium complexion skin.
