CHICAGO — Police are looking for two women who tried to lure children at an Austin school with candy during recess.

At about 11:15 a.m. Monday near John Hay Community Academy, 1018 N. Laramie Avenue, a black 4-door sedan was parked just south of the school in the 5200 block of West Augusta Boulevard when a woman inside the car rolled down the window and tried to wave down children at recess, police said. 

She asked the students if they would like candy and told them to get in the car.

The students told school security and the car drove off west on Augusta.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 312-744-8266 and reference case #JA491707.
