BURLEY — The Cassia County Sheriff’s Office has released the names of four additional suspects in a Sept. 26 stun-gun attack on a woman at a Cassia County home.

Autumn Dawn Garcia, 26, and Berenice Moreno, both of Burley, are charged with felony counts of aggravated battery, burglary and criminal conspiracy. Garcia was also charged with felony intimidating a witness.

The sheriff’s office is also looking for Jasmine Lopez, 24, and Alexandro Torrez, 20, and Selena Ortega, 23, all three from Burley and Rico Parga-Castillo, 23, both of Heyburn, in connection with the attack, according to a statement by the Cassia County Sheriff’s Office.

Warrants have been issued for the arrest of the four suspects.

A woman at the home told deputies that the group at nearly noon entered the home at 314 E. 200 S. without permission and attacked her with a stun gun. When she fell to the floor, they hit her and kicked her multiple times, she said. She said she was also threatened with a collapsible baton.

Cassia County Sheriff Jay Heward said in the statement that the investigation remains under investigation and the office thinks it was an isolated incident due to the affiliation of all the parties involved.

Heward said the sheriff’s office takes home invasions very seriously and the behavior will not be tolerated.

Garcia was charged with intimidating a witness after deputies said she sent messages to the woman after the attack.

Anyone with information on the wanted suspects should call the sheriff’s office at 208-878-2251, ext. 1.
