A fourth person has been charged with attacking a trio of Chicago police officers Monday afternoon and locking them inside a home in the South Side Englewood neighborhood.

About 2:30 p.m., police were arresting a person for spitting into an officer’s face 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, police said.

When the officers chased the person into a nearby home, other residents locked them inside, police said. The officers eventually got out and took three suspects into custody.

Senneca Traylor, 19, was charged with four counts of aggravated battery to a police officer and two counts of resisting or obstructing an officer, police said.
