A violent attack on woman by four other women near the downtown riverfront headquarters of Boeing that occurred early Sunday does not appear to be random.

“The woman says she was at the same party as her attackers,” Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Monday.

“It sounds like some type of dispute at a party; it doesn’t appear to be a random act of someone attacking her,” he said.

The four attackers stripped the 49-year-old woman of her pants and beat her; the woman suffered cuts, bruises and broken teeth. The attack occurred near the Boeing headquarters in the West Loop.

The woman had exited a nearby home about 5 a.m. when her attackers followed her in the 100 block of North Riverside Plaza, according to Chicago Police.

Boeing’s international headquarters is in the same block, at 100 N. Riverside Plaza.

During the attack, the suspects removed the woman’s pants, police said. A passerby found her injured on the ground and initially called in the attack as a sexual assault, but the victim had not been sexually assaulted.

She was taken to Rush University Medical Center, where her condition was stabilized, police said.

Her injuries are not life-threatening, Guglielmi said.
