Man attacked with Taser in Sunset District home invasion robbery

Two suspects attacked a man arriving at his home in San Francisco’s Sunset District, then forced him inside and stole jewelry, used a stun gun on him and fled in his vehicle early Monday morning, police said today.

The robbery was reported at about 2:30 a.m. Monday in the 2100 block of 40th Avenue.

The 21-year-old victim had parked his car in his driveway and opened the garage door when the suspects approached and hit him, according to police.

They then took the man to his room and stole his property, used the stun gun on him and fled in his vehicle, which was later recovered, police said.

The victim was treated at the scene for injuries that were not life-threatening. The suspects remain at large and detailed descriptions of them were not immediately available from police.

Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444.
