Woman stuns disabled step-father six times, family says 911 calls ignored

DETROIT, Mich. (WJBK) -

Paul Sanford still has six clear burn marks on his body, 10 days after the alleged stun gun attack. He says it was his step-daughter who did this to him.

The step-daughter was apparently coming after her mother, Enola Sanford, who had an angry, threatening voicemail on her phone from her biological daughter.

Paul intervened on that threat, and took the shock of a stun gun not once, but six times. He says it "felt like a lightning bolt." Paul is also disabled and walks with a cane; the shock knocked him to the ground.

Meanwhile, Enola calls 911. She tells Savage she was screaming on the phone, and the dispatcher could hear screaming in the background. The Sanford's 8-year-old daughter was also around and saw the whole thing.

She tells Savage, "It was like I didn't want her to be my sister no more. Because she was shooting my daddy with a stun gun."

But Enola says police never showed up, so Enola finally drove Paul to the police station and filed a police report.

Savage spoke with two officers who have no previous knowledge of this case. They say if no one has been shot or stabbed, the calls aren't as much of a priority as the calls for someone who has been shot or stabbed.

The Sanford family is still waiting for police to follow-up on the report they filed.  

Stun guns are legal in the state of Michigan.  A stun gun is not the same device as a Taser. A Taser can be used at distances, while a stun gun can only be used with direct physical contact.
