An Oswego woman who said her and her family were assaulted Oct. 11, 2014 at the Massacre Haunted House on Montgomery Road has settled a lawsuit in Kane County Court against the business' owners. 

According to court documents, Massacre Haunted House admitted no fault in the incident which began when Regina Janito of Oswego and two of her children and two of their friends arrived at the haunted house at about 8 p.m. and were approached by Robert Keller and another man dressed as clowns allegedly carrying sex toys.

Keller, who was a volunteer at the haunted house, allegedly poked a 17-year-old girl with one of the toys while the other unnamed clown allegedly simulated sexual acts on a Teddy bear.  
The group then left without entering the haunted house and filed a report with Montgomery Police.

Police returned a short time later and arrested Keller. He was charged with battery and disorderly conduct, according to Montgomery Police 
Keller eventually pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and was sentenced to 30 hours of community service.

The terms of the settlement were not released, and 
Judge Mark Pheanis ordered the case dismissed and a gag order issued. Janito had sought at least $50,000 in damages. The amount of the settlement was not disclosed.
