Mask eye holes allow for suspect ID

A manager at a KFC in Memphis was able to ID a robbery suspect as one of his former employees because of the large eye holes in the robbers mask.

KFC manager Laketa Hollowell said she unlocked the front door of the restaurant Saturday morning after hearing a knock at the back door and a masked man armed with a knife rushed into the business and demanded money from a safe, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reported Monday.

Hollowell said she recognized the man as Ezederick Jones, 18, an employee who had been fired the previous day, because of the large eye holes in his mask. Her hand was cut during a struggle with the man and he fled after she addressed him by name, investigators said.

That would be why it is never a good idea to rob someone that knows you.
