CUDAHY -- Cudahy police are trying to catch a predator who tried to proposition a 13-year-old girl into having sex with him.
 
The incident happened around 4 p.m. Monday near the 3800 block of E. Edgerton.
 
George Schubert lives in the area and said he hopes the suspect gets caught.
 
"Well yeah it is pretty scary, it is scary, a lot of people out here are going to keep their eyes open, they're going to be very alert," Schubert said.
 

Police said the teen was walking home when the man pulled up in his car and started making sexual comments toward the teen. Officials said he followed her to the intersection of Swift and Holmes Avenue.

Police said the man is white with an average to slightly heavy build. They believe he is in his late twenties to early thirties and was wearing a baseball cap with a chest-length beard. He was driving a 4-door blue or gray colored car.


Danielle Morales said she is warning her kids.

"It's pretty shocking, we go through everything if they were ever approached or touched they better fight, yell scream, call for help, whatever," she said.

 
Anyone with information is urged to contact the Cudahy Police Department.
