CHICAGO — Police have released photos of a van believed to be involved in an attempted luring of a 13-year-old girl in East Garfield Park in August.
According to a community alert sent out after the incident, the girl was leaving a store in the 2900 block of West Madison Street on Aug. 12 about 12:40 p.m. when a man in a white conversion van yelled to her "Do you want some money?"
