A bizarre scene unfolded Sunday afternoon as Chicago police pursued a group of robbery suspects—some described as men dressed as women wearing Daisy Dukes—through the fairways of Sydney Marovitz Golf Course, according to witnesses.

Five people are facing a litany of charges after cops tackled them in a fairway following multiple reports of victims being Tazed and robbed by the group along the lakefront.

One of the suspects allegedly bit a SWAT team member and then claimed to have AIDS, police said.

The mayhem started near Montrose Beach when a man called 911 after allegedly being robbed by the group around 1PM yesterday.

Soon, a series of 911 calls came in to report a group of five females and males dressed as females threatening an ice cream vendor with a Tazer on the lakefront.

Cops eventually spotted the suspects near the lake at Irving Park Road.

Officers described a bizarre foot chase in the middle of the golf course, which was packed with duffers: “He’s wearing a pink hat and spandex” one officer screamed into his radio as the pursuit roared through fifth hole's 515-yard fairway

Cops caught up with the fabulous fivesome in the middle of the fourth hole fairway where a SWAT team member was bitten by the suspect who subsequently threatened to have AIDS, police said.
