Prosecutors say the victim and the four suspects were all at a party on Chicago's South Side on July 27 when one of the suspects, 29-year-old Robert R. Booker Jr., dragged her outside. There, the three women beat her. Authorities say one of the suspects, 27-year-old Tondalaya Ward, used an aluminum baseball bat to beat the woman.

The other two suspects are 27-year-old Vanee Newsome and 21-year-old Sharavia Ward.

None of the four had listed telephone numbers.
