CHICAGO — A man tried to lure a 14-year-old boy waiting for a bus in South Shore this week, police said.

The boy was at a bus stop in the 7800 block of South South Shore Drive about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday when a man pulled up in a silver four-door vehicle, according to the Chicago Police Department. The man told the boy he would take him to another bus stop or drop him off somewhere.
