Police are looking for a man who tried to lure a girl while she walked to school Wednesday in Lincoln Park on the North Side.

He said, “Hey princess, where are you going? Can I take you?” according to police. She ignored him and ran towards her elementary school, and the man followed her before running off.

The suspect was a 30 to 40-year-old man with light facial hair, police said. He wore a black skullcap, red hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and brown Timberland boots.
