CAROL STREAM (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Carol Stream police on Thursday released photos of a man wanted for attempted kidnapping in the west suburb.

Police also said the same man is wanted in a July 2019 incident in which he allegedly followed a 17-year-old girl to her home in Glendale Heights and asked to come inside. The girl refused and he left.

In the latest incident, the man came up behind a 13-year-old girl last Friday in the area of Flint Trail and Niagara Street and wrapped his arms around her, police said.

He tried to pick her up, but her three friends nearby came to her defense and hit him repeatedly until he let her go.

Police released surveillance video and photos from the 2019 incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call Carol Street detectives Charters Roe at 630-327-0995 or Jon Grey at 630-417-0559.
