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.

Two men lured to a Joliet bar by a woman they met at the Louis Joliet Mall were beaten with bats and golf clubs early Tuesday morning, Joliet Police Cmdr. Rich Demick said.

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.

Why don't they mention the name of the bar in the article? And it's unclear if the attack was in the bar or outside. Before or after they entered? Who's the reporter (term loosely given) here? Do your job...
