An 11-year-old girl who escaped an attempted kidnapping Monday afternoon on the South Side told authorities she saw another girl tied up in the man’s van, police said.
The 11-year-old was walking home from school about 3:50 p.m. in the 1000 block of East 63rd Street in Woodlawn when a man approached from behind and grabbed her, according to a community alert from Chicago Police.
The man then tried to force the girl into the back of a large white van with painted windows, police said.
She was able to break free from the man and run away, but reported to authorities she saw a black girl, perhaps 12 years old, inside the van with her hands and legs duct-taped, screaming for help, police said.
The suspect is described as an older black man, about 5 feet 11 inches tall, with graying hair on his wrist, police said. He was wearing a black ski mask, a long black-sleeved shirt and black pants.
