Porscha Gilmore, 28; Damonte Jones, 23; and Johnell Turner, 20, were all taken into custody on charges of aggravated battery to a private security officer and mob action.

Police say two male security officers, 21 and 23 years old, were attempting to make an arrest for a drug violation Monday night. They were reportedly attacked by a group of seven to ten suspects, both men and women.

In response, Rockford Police served multiple warrants​ Tuesday afternoon, and called a SWAT team for backup. The SWAT team arrived for warrant check and security sweep.

Police identified one of the suspects, Porscha Gilmore, at the Auburn Manor complex and took her into custody without incident.

Warrants were obtained for two additional suspects, later identified as Jones and Turner. Their bonds are set at $25,000.

The two security officers were treated for minor injuries.
