• Sugar Grove Police on Oct. 9 were dispatched to the railroad tracks behind the police station on a report of a woman who was beaten and assaulted. Police located the victim on the railroad tracks behind Keck Park baseball fields, and noticed she had multiple bruises on her arm and forehead.

Both men were taken into custody.
The victim told police that she had been drinking with the two males when Campbell dragged her into a cornfield, beat her with a closed fist and attempted to take her clothes off.
The other male subject told police he tried to intervene when Campbell began hitting the victim, but was knocked out after Campbell punched him. He also stated he did not see Campbell try to take the victim’s clothes off.
Campbell was charged with battery, but began to yell that his chest hurt and his blood pressure was getting higher. Sugar Grove Paramedics transported Campbell to Provena Mercy Medical Center in Aurora.
A warrant will be issued after all interviews with the victim are completed. An investigation is pending.
