BOISE, Idaho — Ada County officials have four people in custody for allegedly beating and stabbing a 20-year-old woman late Saturday night in the Boise foothills.

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 officials say they attacked is currently hospitalized and is being treated for serious injuries.

Ada County deputies were first called to a home on 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, according to a press release.

Authorities say the victim had multiple visible injuries and told police three men and the woman beat her, stabbed her with a knife and a broken bottle, and then left her on 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 Ada County officials when they determined the attack occurred in unincorporated Ada County. Detectives have been investigating the case and collecting evidence for the last three days.

"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," a post on Ada County Sheriff's blog said. 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 near Nampa Monday afternoon, and the 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.
