Three men and a woman who beat and stabbed a 20-year-old late Saturday night somewhere along Sunset Peak Road in the Boise Foothills are in custody.
Cody C. Baker, 30; Justice M. Bowie, 20; Kevin M. Ivey, 29; and Brianna Brown, 21, are all charged with aggravated battery in connection with the case. The woman they attacked is currently hospitalized and is being treated for serious injuries as a result of the attack.
Our deputies began their investigation early Sunday morning after being sent to a home in the 1600 block of Braemere Road. The victim in the case told the people who lived there she had just been attacked up the 8th Street extension (Sunset Peak Road) but was able to walk down the road to get help.
The victim had multiple and visible injuries. The victim said three men and the woman 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.
Boise Police and Ada County paramedics responded immediately. Paramedics took the victim to a local hospital for treatment of potentially life-threatening injuries.
Boise Police contacted our agency when they determined the attack occurred in unincorporated Ada County.
Our detectives spent the last three days investigating the case and collecting evidence.
Detectives were not able to interview the victim right away because of her injuries, and when they did, it took some time to identify the four people who were with her on Saturday night.
The victim told investigators she knew all the people who attacked her.
Deputies found and arrested Baker Monday morning in Boise and booked him into the Ada County Jail. Deputies arrested Bowie, Ivey, and Brown during a traffic stop by Nampa Monday afternoon. Those three were booked into the Canyon County Jail on the Ada County charges.
Baker made his initial court appearance Tuesday afternoon. He is being held in the Ada County Jail on a $250,000 bond and has a preliminary hearing set for March 28.
The crime of felony aggravated battery is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
