A Crete Township woman is out on bond on charges she beat another woman with a bat when plans for a sexually explicit themed photo shoot went awry, authorities said.

Kimberly J. Williams, 45, of the first block of Partridge Lane, was charged with one count of aggravated battery for striking the victim more than 20 times with a wooden softball bat, authorities said.

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 on the night of Jan. 15 before going back to have drinks and talk at Williams’ trailer, reports said.

Eventually Williams reportedly became angry and irrational, grabbing the woman’s purse and refusing to let her leave. Around 1:15 a.m. she allegedly 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 neighbors to call police.
