Stun Gun Used To Steal Woman’s Cellphone In SF Japantown

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A woman was robbed of her iPhone in San Francisco’s Japantown neighborhood Thursday night by four people armed with a stun gun, police said.

The 26-year-old woman had been walking in the 1600 block of Post Street near Laguna Street at about 11:05 p.m. when the four suspects—described as black males between 18 and 25 years old—approached her, police said.

One of the suspects produced a stun gun and used it on the woman, who then fell. One of the suspects took her phone, and the men ran away, police said.

Officers tracked the phone and arrested one person who was allegedly in possession of the stolen cellphone.

Police said the woman was not injured in the attack.

    Awesome!!! Great work SFPD!!!!! Hope you catch the rest now! The victim should be allowed to stun them with the same stun gun as many times as she likes, before they go to State Prison.

    Seriously, she could have died, it she had a health condition.
    Fry the savages!!

    Oh!!! I have a GREAT idea! Use the stun gun on the captured thug until he reveals who the identities of the other three thugs!

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close those bad cases.
    How is it that 12 of the 9/11 terrorists could live for 2 weeks just 2 miles from NSA head quarters in Maryland.
    This after several of them had taken flight simulator lessons on Jumbo jet trainers and several of them where on State department terror watch lists.
    There is evidence that employees from DoD, CIA and DOJ accepted bribes from Al Quida.
    If DoJ and DoD employees where more concerned with doing their jobs than enriching themselves by stealing from suspects and taking bribes, then there might have been more a chance that 9/11 had never happened.
