Stun gun attack on bicyclist in East Sacramento leads to arrest

Sacramento police arrested a teen who allegedly used a stun gun on a bicyclist in East Sacramento.

A call came into dispatchers around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday from the bicyclist who stated that he needed help from police before hanging up. Police were able to trace the call to the bicyclist.

The officers, who responded to 56th Street and Elvas Avenue, were provided with part of the license plate of a vehicle by the bicyclist. The bicyclist said he was pedaling when he was assaulted by someone in the vehicle using a stun gun, according to Sacramento police.

Officers were able to find a vehicle that matched the description and further investigation led them to a 17-year-old boy. The teen was arrested and booked into Sacramento Juvenile Hall on suspicion of assault with a stun gun.

Investigators also found a social media post with the boy handling a touch stun gun.
