Man shocked with stun gun during robbery

A stun gun was used on the victim of a terrifying home invasion robbery in the Mission district early Sunday.

Five people are being sought in connection with the attack and robbery in which the 47-year-old resident lost cash and a television, laptop and modem.

About 3:35 a.m., police said, the suspects approached the victim in front of his home in the 2300 block of Folsom Street and threatened to kill him if he did not let them in. After taking the man’s cash, the goons used a stun gun on the victim before making off with the other items.

No arrests were reported as of Tuesday.
