A woman is out on bond on charges she beat another woman with a bat when plans for a S&M-themed photo shoot went awry, authorities said. Kimberly J. Williams, 45, of Crete Township, Chicago was charged with one count of aggravated battery for striking the victim more than 20 times with a wooden softball bat.
Will County police said a 48-year-old New Lenox woman recently met Williams on a domination/submission website and Williams asked about “taking sexually explicit photographs to send to her ‘master’, who is overseas.”
The women met at a restaurant before going back to have drinks and talk at Williams’ trailer.
After the victim and Williams discussed being a dominatrix, she reportedly became angry and irrational, grabbing the woman’s purse and refusing to let her leave. At around 1:15am she punched the woman before grabbing a bat by the door and hitting her with it, police said.
The victim ran outside and began screaming for help, which caused neighbours to call police.
The victim was taken by ambulance to St. James Hospital in Chicago Heights where a “golf ball-sized” lump on her forehead was examined.
Her wrist was also broken.
Police arrested Williams even though she told deputies it was the New Lenox woman who had attacked her. She was released that evening after posting $500 bond.
