Casino worker zapped by a pink stun gun

NIAGARA FALLS – A Seneca Niagara casino employee said she was zapped on the leg while she was in a stall in a public restroom in the hotel/casino, 300 Sixth Street, on Sunday night.

A hotel guest, Karen K. Moore, 43, of North Tonawanda was observed on surveillance video going in and then running out of the restroom just after 10 p.m. She was identified by hotel security as a guest and arrested by Niagara Falls Police on charges of second-degree assault with a weapon and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Moore was found in possession of the stun gun. She told police someone had tried to take her purse. The casino employee denied the charge and said she did nothing to provoke the attack.

The victim said she was in the stall when someone with a pink stun gun reached under the stall dividing wall and then zapped her in the leg. She suffered pain and burn marks on her lower right leg.
