INDIANAPOLIS – A woman says she was stunned and robbed during an incident early Monday morning.

According to a report from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, the 60-year-old woman was working alone inside a large room at International Paper located in the 2100 block of Stout Field East Drive. The woman told police she was checking on a machine when the lights went out.

According to her account, a man smacked her in the left side of her face and told her, “It’s time you keep your mouth shut.” The woman said he then used a Taser on her left arm. She fell down, although she didn’t know if the man pushed her to the floor or if it was a result of the Taser attack.

The man demanded money and jewelry; she handed him $168 in cash and a gold chain necklace worth $300, the report said. The woman told police the man hit her in the arm with the Taser again but couldn’t remember what happened after that.

She described the attacker as a “scruffy” white male, about 5’8” in jeans and a green muscle shirt.
