NORWALK, Conn. -- A Norwalk cab driver told police that a couple attacked him with a stun gun early Friday.

The cab driver reported the incident at 2:49 a.m. Friday, police said.

When he arrived to pick up a fare assigned to him on School Street, a young black man and woman got in his cab and asked to be taken to Stamford, police said.

After he started driving, they asked the driver to stop on Center Avenue by O'Brien Street, police said.

When the driver stopped the car, he looked in his rearview mirror and saw that man pull out what looked like a stun gun, he told police.

The man then put it to the back of his neck and the driver felt a shock, police said.

He hopped out of the car, and said that the couple also got out of the car and ran, police said. He said they did not demand money, and he was unable to provide a further description of the two, police said.
