Woman finds masked robber with stun gun in her car in St. Paul

- A woman leaving work in St. Paul, Minn. early Monday morning was robbed by a man waiting inside her car with a stun gun, according to St. Paul police.  

The 25-year-old woman got in her car after leaving Domino’s Pizza at Grand Avenue and Lexington Parkway at about 4 a.m. and noticed the dome light was not working, according to St. Paul police spokesperson Sgt. Mike Ernster.

According to police, she then felt pressure on her right shoulder and “a tingle in her right leg. A male had been waiting in the back seat of her car. He was wearing a ski mask and had used a stun gun on her.”

The suspect demanded the night deposits from the store, but she didn’t have them. According to the report, the woman jumped out of the car and ran away screaming. The male grabbed her backpack, which contained her cell phone and wallet and ran south.

Ernster said the victim did not require medical attention.

Officers who responded to the scene were unable to locate the suspect.

The suspect was described as five feet seven inches to five feet nine inches tall and 140 to 150 pounds. His skin was possibly light brown. He was wearing a black ski mask, dark-hooded sweatshirt and black pants. Police ask anyone with information to call them at 651-266-5763.
