A 20-year-old woman suffered potentially life-threatening injuries late Saturday night after being attacked by three men and a woman in the Boise Foothills.
According to a post on the Ada County Sheriff’s blog, Cody C. Baker, Justice M. Bowie, Kevin M. Ivey and Brianna Brown are being charged with aggravated battery. Each was arrested Monday.
The victim told deputies that the group, “beat her, stabbed her with a knife and a broken bottle, and then left her off the side of Sunset Peak Road while they drove away.”
The victim, who said she knew the suspects, walked to a nearby home down the road to contact authorities after the attack, the release said.
Deputies arrested Baker, 30, on Monday morning in Boise and booked him into the Ada County Jail. Deputies arrested Bowie, 20; Ivey, 29; and Brown, 21, during a traffic stop by Nampa on Monday afternoon.
Baker was arraigned on Tuesday arraignment before Magistrate Judge Theresa Gardunia, where more details about his role in the crime were disclosed.
A prosecutor asked the judge to set Baker’s bond at $500,000, alleging that Baker drove the victim to the Foothills where she was stabbed multiple times, hit in the head with a rock and punched multiple times.
Baker reportedly admitted to stomping on the victim’s head, punching the victim and holding the victim down so another suspect could stab her, the prosecutor said in court.
The victim reportedly had to walk “a few miles” to a nearby home for help after the suspects left her in the Foothills. She had emergency surgery for a lacerated liver, according to the prosecutor.
The judge set Baker’s bond at $250,000 and has a preliminary hearing set for March 28.
Brown and Ivey were arraigned Wednesday for their suspected roles in the attack. According to the prosecutor, Brown is alleged to have served as lookout during the attack while Bowie allegedly stabbed the victim.
Prior to his Monday arrest, Bowie was awaiting trial for a felony forgery charge in January and was released on bond on March 13, before the suspected attack.
Brown and Bowie had their bail set at $500,000, were issued a no-contact order with the woman and will be in court on March 28 at 8:30 a.m.
Ivey is on probation for a felony burglary conviction in Canyon County stemming from a 2016 case.
If convicted, felony aggravated battery is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
