Police: Stun Gun Used After Suspect Tries Running Away

An attempt to escape police was thwarted after officers used an electroshock weapon to stop the suspect.

The incident happened at 4:20 a.m. at the Broadmoor Towne Center on Southgate, near Highway 115. Officers saw the suspect and a second man walking behind several closed businesses and stopped to talk to them. Police say both suspects tried using fake identities.

As officers tried to detain both men, one of the suspects allegedly tried running away. He didn't get far--police say one of the officers immediately tased him.

Police finally determined the suspects' identities, and say both had several felony warrants. The suspects were taken into custody. They have been identified as Joshua Weichselberger and Richard Cavalier.
