ALLEGHENY TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — A man accused of wearing a zombie mask and using a stun gun on another man is telling his side of the story.
Darob Wright, 28, is facing aggravated assault, robbery and other charges in connection with the alleged incident Friday night.
Police say the victim went to Wright’s home in the Melwood Pool apartment complex in Allegheny Township to collect money when Wright attacked him in his car with a stun gun.
The victim told police his attacker was wearing a zombie Halloween mask as he stunned him repeatedly in the face before pushing him to the ground and robbing him of around $60.
KDKA’s Trina Orlando went to Wright’s apartment and he told her a different story.
He says the alleged victim came to his home looking for drugs and knocked on his door at least four times during the evening before forcing his way inside.
“He came here and he asked for crack cocaine – those were his exact words,” Wright said.
Wright, who is a father of five, says he had never seen the victim before and thinks he made up the story.
“Because he didn’t want the cops to know that he was coming asking for drugs,” he said.
Police said the victim did have injuries consistent with those that would caused by a stun gun. Investigators did not find a stun gun in Wright’s home, but believe he may have had one at the time of the attack.
Wright was released from prison after posting $10,000 bond.
