Authorities received a 911 call just after 11 p.m. Sunday about a woman being assaulted at a home in the 1400 block of West Arrow Highway, the Upland Police Department stated in a news release.

Arriving officers found the attacker still assaulting the victim and decided to use a Taser on him when he did not respond to commands, the Police Department stated.

Prior to the assault, the man had apparently tried to break into the victim’s home but was unsuccessful. The assault began when the victim came outside as the man was trying to leave, investigators stated.

The victim was given CPR following the attack and was transported to a local hospital in critical condition.
