Men Beaten after Being Enticed to Bar by Woman
Joliet police say the pair showed up at a bar at Ruby and Hickory streets shortly after midnight and were immediately set upon by men with bats and clubs.
The victims met the woman at about 5 p.m. Monday, and she invited them to join her later at a bar at Ruby and Hickory streets, Demick said. They arrived at about 12:15 a.m. and were immediately attacked by three Hispanic men, he said.
One victim was hit in the face with a baseball bat and the other in the body with a golf club. The motive is believed to have been robbery, but the two men were able to flee without losing any possessions, Demick said.
They flagged down a police car near Six Corners at Ruby, Raynor and Plainfield Road, and the bat victim was transported to Provena St. Joseph Medical Center in Joliet for treatment, he said.
