Police: Stun Gun Robbers Arrested

Authorities in Massachusetts say two men who used a stun gun during gas station robberies in the South Coast area have been arrested.

New Bedford police tell affiliate WJAR that Rashaun Raheem Burgess and Carlos Martinez were arrested Monday on armed robbery charges in connection with a slew of cases.

Burgess and Martinez were caught by officers in the act at a Cumberland Farms gas station in Wareham, according to police.

Martinez would allegedly buy something at a gas station's counter in order to give an all-clear signal, and Burgess would allegedly hold up the clerk with a pink stun gun.

It's unclear when the pair will be arraigned, or if they have attorneys.
