Chicago police are warning people living on the Near North Side about a group of men beating and robbing people in the early morning hours.

Two attacks happened Saturday -- one in the 400-block of West Division Street and in the 1300-block of North Wells Street.

A group of two to four men approach people walking on the sidewalk and repeatedly hit them with a blunt object or punch them, then steal their property and run away, according to a community alert.
