CHICAGO — Police are asking residents of the O'Hare neighborhood to help find a man who tried to lure a 12-year-old girl to his home.

Around 6:15 p.m. on Aug. 25, the girl was walking in the 8600 block of West Summerdale Avenue when the man rode up on a light blue bicycle and asked the girl "if she was Polish and where she lives," police said in an alert issued Thursday evening.

He then asked her to accompany him to his house, police said.

The girl said "no" and ran home as the man rode west on Summerdale, according to the alert.

Police described the man as a 25-year-old white man standing around 5 feet 9 inches tall with short black hair and a "medium complexion."

Anyone with information on the suspect or the incident is asked to call detectives at 312-744-8200.
