Seattle, WA – A bike messenger was reportedly attacked by a pregnant woman wielding a stun gun.
Authorities said the incident took place on Fifth Avenue a little after 11 am. The bike messenger got into a heated verbal exchange with a driver at a crosswalk. After the man in the gray coupe honked his horn, the bike messenger allegedly kicked the wheel well of the car.
Although the messenger thought the exchange had ended, the man in the coupe soon caught up with him down the street. He was standing on the sidewalk when a pregnant woman allegedly got out of the car and began screaming at him.
The bike messenger said the woman pulled a stun gun out of her bra as she crossed the street. He then tried to escape, but his assailant managed to catch up with him. The pregnant woman then reportedly punched him twice in the face.
The driver of the gray coupe then got out of the car with his own stun gun. He proceeded to swing the weapon at the bike messenger. The two allegedly continued to attack the man before getting back into their car and driving away.
Police are now on the lookout for the pregnant woman and the driver of the gray coupe. The bike messenger wasn’t seriously hurt during the altercation.
This isn’t the first stun gun-related attack reported this month. A brother and sister in Oklahoma city allegedly used the device to rob several people in the area. They are said to have attacked car hops at Sonic and a shopper in a mall parking lot.
Oklahoma City police Master Sergeant Gary Knight said the suspects were eventually apprehended thanks to tips from the public.
“They were obviously on quite a crime spree pulling robbery after robbery after robbery,” Knight explained. “The female was armed with a stun gun or taser and used it numerous times on the victim, eventually taking the cash she had on her.”
