WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Wichita man says the panic button on his medical alert device saved him from two intruders who demanded to buy his prescription pain pills.

KFDI-FM reports (http://bit.ly/18PZBoP ) the incident happened around 8 p.m. Wednesday.

The 57-year-old man told police he recognized a 30-year-old woman who came to his door, but not the man who was with her.

The man says he pushed the woman away when she tried to hug him. At that point, he says, the male intruder knocked him down, used a stun gun on him and tried to force him to sell some of his prescription painkillers.

Police say the couple fled when the victim pressed a panic button that goes to a medical alert business, which then called 911.
