A mugger in Greenwich Village hit the wrong man, it seems, as the 52-year-old victim immediately began chasing the 54-year-old robber, following him down into a subway station on the 1 line, up the tracks to the next station north, then back up to the street, where the victim flagged down a cop and had the mugger arrested. Perhaps this is a sign it's time to retire from the mugging business.
