Robbers zap Mission victim before fleeing


A group of supposed thugs made their getaway Sunday morning after employing a stun gun on their victim, police said Tuesday.

Three men approached the victim near his Mission District home last weekend, demanding they be let inside — or else.

The 47-year-old man complied with their requests, and the three hoodlums brought in two others to help raid the house. The man handed over cash to the suspects at their request, at which point he was shocked with a stun gun by one of the perpetrators.

The group made off with the victim’s TV and laptop in addition to the money.

There are no identified suspects in the case yet, but the group is described is three 25-30 year old men and two women of the same age group.

Despite his attack, the victim was not injured.

Anyone with information is asked to call SFPD’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to text their tip to TIP411.
