Police are searching for two men who shot a 40-year-old man in the chest with a stun gun in an attempted robbery on April 15 outside the victim’s North Corona apartment.

The victim was exiting his apartment, which is in the vicinity of 108th Street and 38th Avenue, to leave for work at around 1 a.m. He spotted a package on his doorstep and paused to pick it up, police say.

As he was reaching down, the two perpetrators leaped out of the hallway stairwell and pushed the victim back into his apartment. The pair shoved the victim and restrained him. One of the alleged perpetrators pointed a stun gun at the victim and shot him in the chest.

The victim’s wife came out of the bedroom and screamed, taking the attackers by surprise. The pair ran out of the apartment and took off on foot in an unknown direction.

The victim suffered an abrasion, bruising and small lacerations on his chest but refused any further medical attention from the EMS on scene.

The two men are both about 6 feet tall. They were both wearing dark clothing and multicolored motorcycle helmets.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
