CHICAGO — Cops said they're looking for a man who tried to lure a girl as she walked her dog in Albany Park on Sunday.

The 11-year-old was walking the dog westbound in the 3900 block of West Argyle Street about 9 p.m. when a man in a white car pulled over to the curb on the corner of Argyle Street and Harding Avenue, rolled down the window and waved at the girl, police said in a community alert. 

Slurring his speech, he said, "Hey, hey you, come here," according to the alert.

The girl ran northbound on Harding Avenue and through an alley to the 5000 block of North Springfield Avenue, where she saw the car going fast and heading north, police said. 

The suspect was described by police as a white or Hispanic man in his 50s with black hair combed straight back, chubby face and wearing a white button-down shirt. The car he was driving was described as a white car with a spoiler and rust on the bottom of the passenger door. 

Earlier that morning, cops said a man climbed into the window of an Albany Park home and sexually abused a girl. Police said the cases are not currently believed to be related.

Cops asked anyone with information to call detectives at 312-744-8200.
