Woman zaps Walmart customers with pink stun gun, police say

Police arrested a woman who allegedly used a pink stun gun on several customers at a Walmart in northwest Fresno.

Officers were called to the Walmart on North Ingram Avenue off Herndon Avenue about 6:30 p.m. regarding a woman who was shocking people with a stun gun inside the store. When police arrived, the woman tried to run south, but was arrested shortly after on the corner of Remington and Fremont avenues.

Walmart surveillance video captured footage of Jasmine Stevenson, 19, approaching several customers and shocking them with her pink stun gun, police said. Among them were a 32-year-old woman, two men ages 19 and 30 and a 12-year-old boy. Each of the victims sustained minor injuries to their backs, arms and torsos, but did not need to be taken to the hospital, police said.

The father of the 12-year-old boy told police Stevenson bit him in the chest after he tried to stop her.

Stevenson was booked into Fresno County Jail on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, child abuse and resisting arrest.
