Five people, including three northwest suburban women, are charged in connection with the beating of a taxi driver in Hoffman Estates earlier this month.

Caitlin Haag, 21, of Sugar Grove, 24-year-old Kristin Lick of Yorkville and 19-year-old Jordan Dolezal of Hoffman Estates are each charged with theft of services and mob action.

Jarrad McCoy, 20, is charged with battery and 22-year-old Richard Olson is charged with felony aggravated battery. They're both from Rockford and are accused of punching and kicking the victim after police say they and the three female suspects failed to pay the cab fare.

The victim required surgery and is recovering from a broken jaw.
