After freeing himself from a washroom in which he had been locked by two robbers, grocer Charles DiMaggio, 54, grabbed a rifle and fired one shot at the fleeing pair. They split up, one of the robbers getting into a taxi. DiMaggio followed in another taxi and, when the robber's vehicle slowed down, the grocer leaped out of the taxi he was in, took aim, fired, and seriously wounded the robber. DiMaggio's grocery store on New York City's Lexington Avenue, was the scene of the holdup.
