Chicago police are searching for a man who attempted to kidnap an 8-year-old boy on Monday.

The suspect reportedly tried to pull the boy through the open driver's side window before the boy hit the driver and was able to run away, according to Chicago ABC station WLS. Chicago police said they did not have that information available to confirm and that the investigation is ongoing.
