GREAT NECK, N.Y. (AP) - A 38-year-old man has been found guilty of posing as a flower deliveryman and using a stun gun on man during a robbery on Long Island.

Newsday reports (https://nwsdy.li/1UGYVvr ) a jury on Wednesday found Daniel Ratliff guilty of second-degree robbery, assault and unlawful imprisonment. Jurors acquitted him of first-degree robbery, burglary, strangulation and larceny.

Authorities say the Bay Shore man struck the victim with a glass vase, pulled out a handgun and tied him up inside a Great Neck apartment before making off with cash and diamond jewelry. The victim suffered facial fractures and head trauma in the June 2014 robbery.

Defense attorney Christopher Cassar says they’re thankful the jury acquitted him of the most serious charges.
