Police in the western suburbs are warning parents about an attempted child abduction around 9:30 a.m. on Lake Street near the main post office in Oak Park.

A female student says a man in his 40s repeatedly tried to coax her into getting into his truck. He then drove off.

The man was driving a small, older-model rusty blue pickup truck. It had a blue cover on the back and a green stripe on the side. Police are warning parents that children should not walk alone and should only walk in open areas and not in alleys.
