The police are looking for a man who's been menacing children dressed in colorful clothes and a mask. 

From the office of First Ward alderman Manny Flores:

A man is wanted by police in their investigation of attempted child abductions in the 1st Ward and the 11th, 13th and 14th police districts. The offender is described as male and has been seen wearing blue or multi-colored overalls. The offender has worn a clown mask or white face paint with tear drops on the cheek. Witnesses stated that the offender drives a white or brown van with the windows broken out. The man was spotted near Garfield Park, Beidler School, Pritzker School, Polaris School and the area of N. St. Louis Ave. and W. Walton St. The offender has reportedly approached children walking to and from school.

Any information regarding the identity of the offender or the vehicle used, please contact: Area 4 Special Victims Unit (312) 746-9259.
