A 21-year-old woman was injured in a fast-food restaurant parking lot on Friday after fighting with – and attacking with a stun gun – an armed man who jumped into her car.
The woman told police that she had parked at the back of the Wendy’s at Central and West at about 6:50 p.m. Friday. As she was getting out of the car to go into the restaurant, she said, a man jumped into the passenger side of her car, pointed a handgun at her and demanded money.
“At that time, the female, who had possession of a stun gun, used the stun gun on him, and a fight ensued between the two,” said Sgt. Brian Sigman of the Wichita Police Department. “The suspect hit the 21-year-old victim about the face with the gun prior to jumping out of the car and then leaving.”
Instead of calling 911, Sigman said, the victim drove to a friend’s house nearby, and the friend took her to the hospital. That’s when police were alerted.
Never miss a local story.
“We really recommend that folks call 911 immediately after something like that happens,” Sigman said. “It gives us a better chance of being able to figure out who our suspect may be and gives us a better chance of finding the suspect hopefully still in the area.”
The woman suffered a fractured nasal cavity and other facial injuries. No one has been arrested.
