Police say a man dressed as a woman has tried to abduct young girls in Chicago's Englewood community.

Police issued an alert after the man tried to kidnap four girls on two separate occasions this week in the 6600-block of South Wood. The girls were not hurt.

The man wore a mask, women's clothing and a longhaired wig in both incidents. Police say he was driving a lime green 2002 Ford van with Illinois plate 58355X.
