ST. LOUIS — A 27-year-old woman is recovering after being attacked by seven people in St. Louis, and police say four children ages 11 to 15 are among the suspects.

Police were called Monday to a report that two men and two women were being attacked. Police say the attack was sparked by a previous argument between two of the people involved.

Three victims did not require treatment, but one woman was initially unresponsive and remains hospitalized in stable condition.

Assault charges were filed Tuesday against 22-year-old Abrianna Gibson. She does not have a listed attorney.

Other suspects include an 11-year-old boy and girls ages 11, 14 and 15, along with an 18-year-old male and a male whose age is not known.

Neighbors say the victims are refugees, but didn’t say where they are originally from.
