CHICAGO — Chicago police say a group of robbers have been using fake road blocks to attack drivers.

This is happening in the Fuller Park neighborhood on the South Side.

It’s happened twice in the last five days in the 300 and 400 blocks of west 51st Street, around 6 p.m.

After drivers stop to move a construction barrel blocking the street, three or four suspects start attacking and robbing them.

Police have only released vague descriptions of the suspects.
