Chicago police are warning residents in the city's Hyde Park community to be alert after an attempted child abduction.

It happened Wednesday morning in the 5400-block of South Kenwood.

A 13-year-old girl tells police that a man pulled his car over and asked her if she wanted a ride. She said no and he drove away.

The man had black hair, a black and gray mustache, and black-rimmed glasses. He was driving a red, late-model four-door SUV.

Police remind parents that children should not walk alone.
