The Post, New York, NY, 4/27/88

Friday, July 1, 1988

New York Post photographer Joe De Maria responded to a distraught Italian woman tourist's cries and gave chase to a mugger in New York's Chinatown. When the cornered bandit tried to bluff De Maria with a bunched-up jacket, the photographer drew his licensed revolver and yelled, "Don't even think about it." The robber dropped the pretense with his coat while De Maria used a portable radio to contact police, who charged the man with robbery.
