Police are warning residents in the city's Marquette Park community to be alert after an attempted child abduction. A boy says the man approached him in a van which was driven by a woman Sunday in an alley at 6400-block of South Troy. He says the man opened the side door, grabbed the boys leg and tried to pull him in.

The boy escaped unharmed.

The suspect's vehicle is described as a late model dodge caravan in grey or silver. Police have released a sketch of the suspect.

Anyone with information should call Chicago police.
