BEDFORD-STUYVESANT - A would-be robber is in custody after police say he electrocuted a Bed-Stuy bodega worker with a stun gun over the weekend.

Police say the suspect shot at the employee, Randy Almanzar, leaving him weak and dizzy. But Almanzar managed to fight back, grabbing a bat and following the suspect.

Authorities say they were able to arrest 41-year-old Vincent Johnson after Almanzar told them which direction Johnson had fled.

Johnson faces attempted robbery, assault and criminal possession charges. He's being held on $4,000 bail.
