WASHINGTON (AP) -- D.C. police are looking for a robber who shocked his victim with a stun gun in Georgetown.

Police say the robber snuck up behind the victim in the 1500 block of 34th Street NW on Tuesday night and used the stun gun to immobilize the victim before fleeing with the victim's cellphone, change and wallet.

Police say the victim's injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
