Missed connection of the day: Greenpoint robbery averted by good samaritan
Here’s your feel-good story of the day, via Craigslist (Missed Connections, of course): A would-be cell phone thief in Greenpoint is chased down on the street by a random stranger who makes him give up the phone, and an apology, to his would-be victim. The stranger and the no-longer-victim hug, go their separate ways, and then, hours later, are like…WTF. Did that just happen? They both post Missed Connections to each other within a couple of hours of each other to say thanks. Cause this sort of thing doesn't happen everyday, actually.
