As Charles Di Maggio was closing his New York City, N.Y.,
grocery store three thugs entered and forced Di Maggio into a
washroom in the rear of the store. One of the bandits pointed a
pistol at Di Maggio and warned: "I would rather shoot you than look
at you. We always wanted to get you, Di Maggio, and we're taking no
chances this time." The stick-up men took $300, a wallet, keys, and
wrist watch from the grocer and then returned, single file, to the
front of the store, pausing at the cash register. This gave Di
Maggio time to get out his rifle which was hidden in the washroom;
he inserted one cartridge and fired. The single bullet went through
the upper chest of the last bandit and into the body of the second.
The last thug staggered out the door and fell dead into the gutter.
The second bandit made it to about a block away and collapsed at the
feet of a policeman. He was taken to the hospital in critical
condition. The third bandit escaped with the money. During the
past ten years, Di Maggio has had 26 attempted robberies, 11 of
which were successful. He has captured 15 thugs, and killed three.
