LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Four people were arrested after, police say, they attacked a Longview man with a wooden baseball bat.

Around 11 Thursday night, police say two men and two women beat down the door to an apartment on Tammy Lynn drive. When police arrived, the four fled. Police eventually stopped the suspects and learned they attacked as a retaliation over a past domestic violence situation.

Officers found sufficient evidence to arrest the suspects and all four were charged with burglary of a habitation, a first degree felony. The suspects are Kimberly Anne Studebaker, 40, of Longview, Matthew Salvador Martin, 19, of Longview, Shae Everett Asbury, 18, of Ore City, Nancy Hernandez, 18, of Longview.

No one was seriously injured during the incident. All four suspects were transported to the Gregg County Jail.
