policeblotter_sfa.jpg12 PM: Two San Francisco women were shocked with a stun gun and robbed while sitting in their car Wednesday evening in the city’s Balboa Terrace neighborhood, according to police.

The women, sisters ages 25 and 35, were in their car on Ocean Avenue at San Fernando Way at about 7:30 p.m. when two men in their 20s or early 30s approached, opened the doors and demanded money, police said.

The women both refused and one of the suspects shocked the women with a handheld stun gun device, police said.

The suspects then snatched the women’s purses, wallets and several credit cards, and fled on foot, according to police.

The women did not suffer significant injuries in the attack, police spokesman Lt. Troy Dangerfield said.

“They were stunned through their clothing,” Dangerfield said.

“There were no visible injuries.”

No detailed suspect descriptions were available and no arrests were made.

    A stun gun isn’t a taser.
    The differences may be subtle but important. Taser’s a brand name, it shoots over distance, is shaped like a gun, costs 10-20 times more, and is probably a lot more difficult to get a hold of. A stun gun is generic, needs body contact to work, probably comes in a smaller more concealable shape, and can be easily bought from ebay for under $20. That’s the thing you might be more worried about kids buying with their lunch money.
