It was the second time in less than two months that someone was attacked with a taser and robbed on that block. On Jan.14, a 32-year-old woman was dragged out of her car, beaten, tasered and robbed of $600.
According to police, the victim said he was just about to enter his house when he was approached by three young men. He was tasered and tackled to the ground. The victim said he was punched in the face, and his girlfriend was grabbed from behind.
Reported stolen were an 8gb iPod and a Samsung Galaxy Exhibit phone. The victim refused to be taken to Northwest Detectives for further interview.
