PEORIA -- The Peoria County State's Attorney's Office is finding new housing for a 22-year-old woman who says six women attacked her for helping the office with a case.

The (Peoria) Journal Star reports police say the woman was attacked Sunday over her involvement in a case, but they aren't saying which one. She tells police a woman she knew arrived at her apartment early Sunday with five other women.

A police report says they forced their way into the residence and began kicking and punching the woman and choking her friend.

Police say they're seeking two known suspects among the attackers on charges of aggravated battery, aggravated assault and home invasion.

No arrests had been made Sunday night.
