Three Aurora men have been charged with the sexual assault of a 25-year-old Joliet woman, according to police and court records.

Authorities said the woman and three men went out on Aug. 10 to an undisclosed Naperville restaurant, they all drank alcohol and the woman, who was an acquaintance of one of the men, became extremely intoxicated.


The four eventually went back to an Aurora home on the 1500 block of Kenilworth Place shared by Eric Stallworth Jr. and Corderro A. Pollard, both 22, police said.

Stallworth, who is an acquaintance of the victim, and Pollard assaulted the woman and Shammrie M. Brown, 25, of the 600 block of Ohio Street, did not try to stop it, police said.

"While at the home, Stallworth and Pollard allegedly had sex with the victim. Due to her intoxicated state she was unable to give consent. Suspect Brown was allegedly present during the non-consensual sex and although he did not apparently participate, he did not attempt to stop the assault," said Dan Ferrelli, Aurora police spokesman. "The investigation is ongoing."

All three were charged this week and were being held at the Kane County jail on $300,000 bond, meaning each must post $30,000 to be free while the case is pending.

All three are due in court on Thursday.

Stallworth faces three counts of criminal sexual assault, while Pollard faces two counts of the same charge for the Aug. 11 attack, according to court records. Brown faces one count of criminal sexual assault, records show.

If convicted, the felony charges carry a penalty of four to 15 years in prison.

Ferrelli said Aurora police began investigating Aug. 15.

"We started the investigation due to a hospital report involving the woman," he said.

Ferrelli would not comment if authorities are seeking other suspects or what injuries the woman suffered.

"It's an ongoing investigation," he said.
