A Lombard couple appeared in bond court Thursday on charges stemming from a fight near Glen Ellyn in which two men were stabbed, one of them repeatedly.

DuPage County prosecutors said an investigation into the July 1 altercation was ongoing as Nicholas Beaudoin and Alyssa Cortese were held on bail of $100,000 and $60,000, respectively.

Neither Beaudoin nor Cortese, both 23, is accused of stabbing the victims, who were injured about 1:20 a.m. outside a 7-Eleven on Butterfield Road near the I-355 interchange. But prosecutors said Beaudoin threw a punch in the fight and his girlfriend took off in a 2009 Audi A4, which belonged to one of the victims and was totaled moments later in a crash just blocks away.

Assistant State's Attorney Tom Vega said both victims were stabbed in the torso. One of them was stabbed once, he said, while the other was stabbed four times. Their conditions and ages were not available.

Judge Elizabeth Sexton set bail for Beaudoin, of the 200 block of South Main Street, and Cortese, whose address was listed in court records only as Lombard. They would have to post $10,000 and $6,000, respectively, to be released.
