Police investigate two taser robberies and a van was used in both

Cleveland police are looking for robbery suspects who are tasing victims before grabbing their stuff. There were at least two incidents on Tuesday.

The first happened just after midnight at 3078 E. 123rd.

Bernard Eddy said that a gray van pulled alongside him, several males jumped out, shoved him down to the ground and tased him in the face before taking his wallet and phone. The men got back in the van and sped off southbound along E. 123.

The second incident happened around 1:30 a.m. on Parkview Ave.

Nishelle J. Moss told police she was walking down the street when three men approached from behind. Moss says she was hit in the head before they stole her bag. Moss says the men ran back into a dark colored van that took off eastbound on Parkview. She was not injured.

Police have not said if the robberies are connected. If you have any information on either incident give police a call.
