Chicago police are warning residents about a man who tried to lure children at a North Side park.

Police say two 10-year-old girls were jogging at Oz Park last Thursday when a man in a car rolled down his window and offered them candy. The girls were at the park for a supervised physical education class for a nearby school. The man was driving a black car, possibly a Mercedes Benz.

Police are reminding area residents to make sure children walk or play in pairs and to report any suspicious activity.
