Officers were called out to the 8800 block of Detroit Ave. around 2 p.m. after a victim reported that six men with a digital camera approached him claiming to be with a local television station and wanted to interview him.
The 34-year-old man kept walking and that’s when he said the “news crew” jumped him and zapped him on the neck with a stun gun.
According to a Cleveland police report, officers got a phone call from the owner of Dairy Mart on Detroit Avenue and W. 89th Street for a group of men using a stun gun on people and videotaping the incidents.
Officers arrived and saw three men crossing Detroit Avenue at W. 80th Street. Two of the men matched the suspect descriptions. The trio were walking towards a bus stop where officers approached and detained them.
The men told officers during interviews that one person would stun their victim while another videotaped it “for fun.”
Three suspects have so far been questioned and the video footage of their camera has been reviewed. It looks like there are even more people involved in the case. What a strange story. Will it appear on YouTube soon?
