Friday, September 11, 2009 — Cook County Sheriff’s Police are issuing a community alert after the attempted abduction of a 12-year-old girl on Tuesday, while she was walking to school in Stickney area, according to the Office of Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart.

   The girl, who attends Charles J. Sahs Elementary School at 5001 S. Long, was walking south on Lockwood, en route to school around 9 a.m. when the driver of a van stopped and asked her if she wanted some chocolate, she said.  When she told him no, the driver exited the vehicle, walked around to the back, opened the door of the van and attempted to coerce the victim into the van.  The girl then ran home, alerting a family member.  Sheriff’s Police have been canvassing the area looking for the driver, vehicle in question as well as any witnesses.
