Edgar and Froylan Alonso, Aleixs Miron and Andres Correa-Pedroza, all men in their 20s from Crystal Lake, were arrested Friday and charged with aggravated battery and mob action.

Crystal Lake police say the incident occurred May 7 around 2 a.m. near Woodstock and Williams streets.

The three victims told police the four alleged attackers verbally and physically assaulted them after the victims left a bar and were en route to an apartment. The victims say the attackers kicked and punched them. The victims gave police a license plate numberafter the attackers fled.

Two of the suspects were still jailed, two posted bond, including Miron, who was then taken into custody on an outstanding warrant related to a traffic stop. He faces misdemeanor traffic and marijuana charges.
