A Manhattan drug store was recently robbed by 27-year-old Trevor Frasca, who fled on foot and was no doubt pleased that he was leaving a pursuing store employee in his dust. Unfortunately for Trevor, the pursuit was picked up by James Marr, described as a 79-year-old who runs "obsessively" in Central Park six days a week.
