The Oak Park Police Department has released new information about a man who reportedly attacked and abducted a 13-year-old girl on Feb. 5 at about 4:15 p.m.

The man allegedly grabbed the girl from behind and carried her to his vehicle, but she fled from the vehicle.

Police originally reported that the vehicle was a red Toyota, but have updated that to a black Toyota. Also, the vehicle was parked in the 400 block of Washington Boulevard, not the 600 block, as originally reported.

A sketch artist from the Cook County Sheriff's Office released a composite drawing based on the girl's description.

She described him as a light-skinned black man, 6-feet tall with green eyes.
