A community alert is in effect in the West Rogers Park neighborhood, after a man tried to rape a teenager.

It happened Monday evening in the 2500 block of W. Morse Ave.

The man poked his head out of a dark four-door car and asked the girl if she wanted a ride; she refused, but she says he got out and pressed a hard object against her neck, then forced her into a nearby gangway.

As he tried to pull off her clothes, the motion sensor on someone’s home security system switched on a light, and the man got scared and ran away.

Police describe him as white, about 50 years old and heavy set, with white hair and a white beard; and he speaks with an accent.
