Police are trying to identify a young boy who was found sitting unattended on a curb on Chicago’s South Side Friday morning.

The approximately 20-24-month old boy was reportedly left on the curb by an unknown adult male black in the 6500 block of South Stewart around 10 a.m. 

Witnesses told police that the man was driving a beige “unknown” vehicle. Information from Area South detectives did not specify the type of vehicle.

Police believe the child’s age to be between 20-24 months old. He is black, with brown eyes and brown hair, and stands 36-inches tall. There is a birthmark by his right eye.

The boy was found wearing a blue jacket with red trim and beige pants, black and white socks, and Nike Jordan shoes, detectives said.

Anyone with information about the child’s identity or the adult male that allegedly left him on the curb, should contact the Area South Special Victims Unit at 312-747-8276 or 911.

They buy him Jordan's and then leave him on the curb like a piece of trash?!?! Don't really expect much more from the low life trash that lives in Englewood. Or wait let me guess they are going to find a way to blame white people for this too.
