Fremont Universe has learned of yet another attack on a woman involving the use of a stun gun.  It happened in Greenwood, just three days after a woman was attacked and robbed here in Fremont.

The most recent case happened Thursday (5/20) in the 700 block of North 102nd Street.  A woman had just parked her car and was taking the groceries out of the trunk when a man and woman walked up and tried to zap her.  She felt the device on her neck and heard three or four clicks, but it didn’t stun her.  The female attacker then grabbed the victim’s purse and sped away with the man in a nearby car. 

The female suspect is described as black, 20’s, heavy set, with short hair.  The man is described as black, mid 20’s, and slender.  They left in a silver large size sedan which was later found abandoned in a parking lot.  That car had been reported stolen.  The same thing happened to a woman in Fremont three days earlier, and in Ballard on May 19.  Police tell us they believe all 3 attacks are related.
