Chicago police issued a community alert following the attempted abduction of a teenager on the city's Southwest Side.

A 16-year-old girl tells police that a man asked her to get into his car and offered to take her to a store to buy her something.

It happened around a.m. last Monday in the 7100-block of South Sacramento.

The girl was able to get onto the bus and get away.

The man was driving a gray, four-door, mid-size sedan.

Chicago police warn that children should not walk alone. They also suggest that parents and their children identify safe havens along their route to and from school.
