Three people have been charged with attacking a trio of Chicago police officers and locking them inside a South Side Englewood neighborhood home Monday afternoon.

Police were taking a person into custody for spitting in an officer's face about 2:30 p.m. in the 7000 block of South Throop when another person came up and threw a piece of wood at the back of an officer's head, according to Chicago police.

The officers chased the person into a nearby home and other residents of the home locked the officers inside, police said. The officers were eventually able to get out and took three suspects into custody.
