( Covington, Kentucky ) - Police took 20-year-old Edward Dahn into custody on Friday morning. He's accused of robbing and beating a gas station clerk in Florence last week.

Family members say 67-year-old Kanubai Patel is now paralyzed from the neck down after Dahn put him in a choke hold during their struggle. Dahn also allegedly had a knife at the time. He's accused of stealing Patel's car to get away.

Dahn was caught driving that car on Friday. He's now being held on $200,000 bond.
