A 15-year-old girl walking home from Ridgeland Common around 9:30 p.m. on June 7 avoided an attempted abduction by four men, Oak Park police reported.
The girl, an Oak Park resident, was walking in the 400 block of South Scoville Avenue when three men exited a green, older-model, four-door sedan and approached her.
One man grabbed the girl's arm and said she "should come and party with them," according to the police report.
The victim refused and the offender released his grip, according to police. The man who grabbed the girl's arm is described as a black male, about 20 years old, roughly 6 feet tall, with a slim build, hair in shoulder-length dreadlocks and tattoos on his arm.
All of the men were about 20 years old, according to a description given by police. Of the two other men who exited the car, one was described as "bald" while the other had his hair "in a faded mohawk style." All wore white T-shirts and dark pants.
The offender and the two men with him then got back into the car, which was driven by a fourth man, and fled the scene.
According to Oak Park Police Commander LaDon Reynolds, the victim didn't sustain any injuries.
