This is scary.

A 34-year-old man awoke on the pavement in the Outer Sunset District last night with some pain to his abdomen and without his wallet.

According to police, the victim was walking home at 9:31 p.m. when he was tased while at the intersection of Great Highway and Noriega.

While the victim was knocked out, the robber took his iPod, wallet, cash, credit cards, and driver's license. When the man woke up, he couldn't remember anything, but found the Taser on the ground next to him, according to police.

"Anytime someone is tased, it's pretty scary because not many criminals carry them," said Officer Albie Esparza. "It's disturbing because that means they are running around with Tasers and robbing people."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
