EAST PALO ALTO (CBS/AP) — Auto thieves used a stun gun to subdue a motorist during a Northern California carjacking.

The Palo Alto Daily News reported three men, one of them armed with a handgun and another with a stun gun, confronted the driver of a 2004 Jaguar on Monday evening in East Palo Alto.

Investigators say the victim was shocked with the stun gun before the suspects drove away in the silver Jaguar.

The victim, whose name hasn’t been released, didn’t need medical attention.
