Defendant Nicole Parkin returning to court for stun gun attack case

DENVER - A Denver woman accused of repeatedly shocking a woman in the face with a stun gun and kicking the woman while she was on the ground will return to court Thursday.

The bizarre attack happened about 11:42 p.m. on April 8 near South Lincoln Street and East Alameda Avenue in Denver. An affidavit says the victim was in the entryway of her apartment building, trying to punch in a security passcode to the front door, when it happened.

Nicole Parkin allegedly used the hand-held stun gun repeatedly on the victim's face, jabbing her with the electrical prongs.

"I was trying to get her off of me, and she wouldn't stop," the victim told police. "So, I got down on the ground in the fetal position, and she just kicked me and left."

The attacker allegedly said, "Don't f*** with me, bitch," before walking away, the victim recounted.

Police identified Parkin through the license plate number the victim reported seeing on her car.

Parkin was arrested on April 19. She's been formally charged with felony assault causing injury and has been released from jail on $50,000 bond, according to court records.

In a phone call with 7NEWS, Parkin denied using a stun gun on the woman and quickly said she wouldn't talk further. Parkin's LinkedIn profile says she is a paralegal at a Denver law firm. 

Parkin is a petite 5-feet-2, 110 pounds, according to arrest records. She had a 2010 arrest in Denver for assault and disturbing the peace, and pleaded guilty to assault, according to court records.

Parking is on the docket for a disposition hearing and a motions hearing Thursday.
