Male Intruder Uses Stun Gun On Woman In Schaumburg

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. (CBS) –-Schaumburg residents are uneasy after a male intruder with a stun gun attacked a female victim in her own home before he was scared off by the woman’s fiancé.

It happened Wednesday morning in a subdivision near Barrington and Old Church roads.

Police say the suspect rang the doorbell about 7:15 a.m. and claimed to be a neighbor who needed to use the bathroom. He said his the plumbing at his residence wasn’t working.

When the 26-year-old victim opened the door, the suspect used a stun gun on her. She yelled for her fiancé, who rushed to her aid.

“When I called for her, he acted very shocked and panicked,” the fiancé told CBS 2’s Pamela Jones.

The suspect fled.

As police work to create a sketch of the criminal, neighbors are making sure their doors are locked and are being extra careful about opening their doors to anyone.

“In my opinion, it had to be somebody who had been watching the area and kind of knew the ins and outs of people around the neighborhood,” Kathleen Van Bogaert said.

Police describe the suspect as a heavy-set white male of about 270 pounds. His large stomach is a distinguishing feature.

He stands about 5-11 and is between 45 and 55 years old.

The woman shocked by the stun gun Wednesday has minor bruises and bumps, her fiancé says.

      Missy, you need to learn to read. The article clearly states he was white, 5’11, 270lbs, large belly, 45-55 years old and there was also a description of clothing.
      Now, that does sound a lot like your boyfriend, so you need to ask him where he was at 7:15 in the morning.

    Was he green?

    Word of caution to legal firearm owners. You can carry your firearm on your hip within your residence. So when this fat guy comes knocking again…take the lead from a woman in Oklahoma who defended herself from 2 intruders accordingly. Intruder #1 is in jail. Intruder #2 is in the morgue

      Because the laws protect the criminals more than the victims, I wouldn’t suggest you fire through the door at any potential intruder. Unfortunately they must break into your house before you can “legally” shoot them and aim to kill or they will sue you. Ridiculous, but true.

    My dad used to day blow their brains out and then drag them into the house.

    @Lyndia, You should take note, for every one white criminal like this guy, there are dozens of negroid criminals. Your frequent sexual comments really shows all of us what kind of mentality you have. Sex seems to be your method of striking out at people. We all know what that means. You are childish and very twisted. You are made to look foolish every time you comment. Do you enjoy looking foolish? If you don’t want to be a constructive part of our discussions, why post at all. Please just go away!!!
