    A 21-year-old woman was allegedly tasered in the head and attacked by two suspects in Pacific Beach early Thursday morning, officials said.

    The alleged assault happened around 2:30 a.m. near Diamond and Dawes Streets in PB.

    The woman, who had separated from her friends, was walking alone in the area when a white sedan carrying four occupants began following her.

    Police say two young men got out of the vehicle and allegedly attacked the woman, tasing her in the head. As a struggle ensued, the victim managed to hit the redial button on her cell phone and called her friends.

    The woman’s friends heard her screaming on the phone and in the distance. Eventually, the suspects stopped the attack and fled the scene.

    The suspect vehicle was stopped by police shortly thereafter on Garnet Avenue.

    All four occupants inside the car – two adults and two juveniles -- were taken into custody, police said. They’re accused of robbery and assaulting the woman with a taser.

    Residents in the area spoke with NBC 7 Thursday and said they heard screaming, looked outside and saw a bunch of people rushing to help the woman after the assault.

    One young woman who lives in the area said she was shaken up by the incident.
