Oddball robber gets away
Friday, November 21, 2003
A bank robber in Modesto, California, forgot to cut holes in his mask.
Witnesses said he held up the bottom of it so he could see but even then he had to walk with a shuffle.
Police say he still managed to escape with cash and was last seen driving away with an accomplice.
He is described as wearing a pink shirt, large white gardening gloves and tight jeans, reports the Modesto Bee.
Detective Thomas Blake said: "As he rushed to leave the building he forgot which side the door hinges were on, walked into the steel door frame, banged his head and knocked his hat off."
